Student Enrolment

All students at JSA must be funded under the PSD category of Autism Spectrum Disorder, and eligibility must be determined prior to enrolment.  Please refer to our Enrolment Policy for further information.   In addition, students must live within the school zone (referred to as the Designated Transport Area or DTA) to be eligible for enrolment.  Please see the link below to see if your residential address lies within our DTA.

Please note that the school is at capacity and has reached its ceiling as set by the North Western Western Region.  Places in year levels other than prep for the next academic year are not available at present.  Should one become available, those already on the prospective enrolment list will be considered.  At present our prospective enrolment list has many students on it and less than a handful of positions become available each year due to student relocation or integration into mainstream settings.

School Tours

As we are unable to hold on-site school tours at present we will be holding a PREP 2021 Q & A SESSION via WebEx on Tuesday 15 September 9.30am. Please join us for our last virtual Q & A session for Term 3. The session will cover eligibility requirements, procedures for obtaining assessments and any other questions you may have about JSA. Please email Julie Coonan for a link to the session at Julie.coonan@education.vic.gov.au  or call 0438 047 548 so we can send you the link for the WebEx session.

To make the session as helpful as possible please send through any questions or topics you would like to be included in the session by Friday 11 September 2020

We look forward to meeting with you over WebEx.

Please note this is an online only meeting no-one will be able to attend onsite at JSA.

Tour dates for 2020:

Due to the evolving situation of COVID-19 schools are not able to conduct on-site school tours for prospective students or their families at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and will release new tour dates once the Department of Education and Training and the CHO advise it is safe to do so.
