Leadership entry program

ICMS understands the value of leadership and we believe it should be rewarded. Our Leadership Entry Program offers students who have demonstrated significant leadership in their school and/or community, a guaranteed place at ICMS based on their academic achievement, leadership experience and aspirations, and a nomination from their school. Take your first step to becoming management ready today!


You are currently completing your year 12 studies and are a School Captain/Vice-Captain, Prefect or Student Representative Council President/Vice President or member. In addition, ICMS also seeks applications from students who have demonstrated leadership through their involvement with community organisations and clubs.

If you believe you do not meet the criteria for Leadership Entry Program, you may be eligible for the Early Entry Pathway or the Elite Athlete/Performer Pathway Program. Alternatively, make a Direct Application.
