Boarding Applications

Boarding applications

Both campuses offer residential boarding for students joining Grade 8 and above.The application process for boarding is the same as for day students, except that all prospective boarders are considered for a place on both campuses and have a boarding suitability interview as part of their application review.  

Interviews are conducted by either the Director of Residential Life or one of the Boarding Houseparents, are held online via video-conferencing, and typically take 30-45 minutes. 

Current day students applying to transfer to the boarding house should contact Admissions directly.
