Enrolment Dates

Enrolment timeline

As the first step in the process, you need to register online so that you and your son are on our database. This can be done anytime from your son’s birth onwards but we recommend that you do this no later than the beginning of his grade 6 year.

An 18-month enrolment process will start in your son’s grade 6 year.

Because Hilton College is a special place offering a unique experience, your boy must be confident that Hilton is the place for him. We must be sure that he and you, his parents, are equipped to make an informed decision by April of his grade 7 year. To support your family in getting to that point, we make every effort get to know you, and allow you the opportunity to get to know us. We encourage you to spend as much time as possible with us to understand our school and everything we believe in. You’ll have opportunities to visit our beautiful campus and your son can even stay overnight, enjoy a relaxed yet informative school tour and chat to our inspiring faculty, support staff and most importantly, our boys.


We, as a school, and prospective families must both ask, is Hilton College the right environment for this boy?

The Hilton College experience is not a five-year journey. It’s a lifetime of inspiration and empowerment for every member of our supportive community.

Below is a brief outline of the 2025 enrolment process:
