- Students for whom South Oakleigh College is the nearest neighbourhood school*
- Students who reside permanently at the same address as a brother or sister attending South Oakleigh College
- Students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds
- In a limited number of cases only, a student may be enrolled on compassionate grounds, where there are significant family or individual circumstances

Acknowledgement of Country
South Oakleigh College respectfully recognises the historical and cultural significance of Australia’s Indigenous history and the role it plays in contemporary education.
Each day in Australia, we all walk on ancestral Indigenous lands.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we learn and work, who are the Bunurong/Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our organisations and communities.
