I am hoping to get some advice on some schools in Geelong. I am looking at Kardinia International or Christian College Geelong for our son.
He is only 6 months old but wanted to get in early. I have put an application into Kardinia already however, I feel like it's very difficult to get in and the chances are not very high. Has anyone had any experience with this?
Christian College is the backup at the moment however, there are multiple campuses to choose from and a new campus opening in Torquay by the time he is at school. I am wondering if there is a better campus to attend or if anyone has any experience? As a private school, it is not zoned so we would have the choice. I am nervous about the new campus as its not established however, it would be new and closer to home.
Any advice on any schools or anything Geelong would be greatly appreciated. I am looking forward to hearing the good and bad!
Thanks so much

I'm not from Geelong but for what it's worth I would be choosing the campus closest to school. It makes life so much easier.

@ProudMumma34 I believe Kardinia International has a very good reputation with great academic results for the fees that you pay and the waiting list is that long and still not guaranteed. Christian College is my backup. I want to be prepared as we are moving from Melbourne to Geelong and want to make sure we have somewhere that can provide him with a good education. I know it seems excessive and it might be the Melbourne mentality in me (his childcare centre in Melbourne has a 3 year wait list) but when I contacted the school, it doesn't seem too likely that they will have places. I just have my fingers crossed.
