St John's Home Boarding Program
St John’s Home Boarding offers a unique boarding alternative for Australian families. Students from regional and rural Australia can now access an exciting and joyful coeducational learning experience in private boarding with our long-established and trusted homestay families.
For many families that require flexibility and convenience, St John’s Home Boarding offers weekly or term-time private boarding with our homestay families for students from Years 6 to 12.
There are many benefits to St John’s Home Boarding. In addition to the valuable opportunities to develop independence, resilience and personal growth, St John’s Home Boarding fosters a sense of family and belonging, developing lifelong friendships with fellow students and homestay families. Our St John’s family will offer the highest of care to your family.
As a St John’s Home Boarding student, your child will be safe, comfortable, supervised, and supported both academically and socially. Your child will be immersed in a St John’s way of life, being involved in some of the College’s many rich co-curriculum activities and supported through the student wellbeing structure while having the option to return home on the weekend to spend time with their own families.
Creating a positive culture and ensuring that every one of our students has positive individual wellbeing is something we take very seriously at St John’s. It is part of the St John’s way, where everyone is responsible for upholding our College values of faith, love, hope, justice, courage, community and striving to achieve a respectful and inclusive College community.
Our educators are dedicated to providing a nurturing, challenging and rewarding education to enable our students and your child to grow a strong sense of self, be agile and responsive to the changing world as they become people of influence in the global community.
From the moment your child joins St John’s, they will become part of a special, inclusive community with the courage to soar in school and in life.
Our College Registrar welcomes the opportunity to talk with you about the endless opportunities offered at the College and how St John’s Home Boarding can work for your family.
