Boarding Lifestyle

Boarding at Monivae has been an integral part of College life for 65 years. Today, it is best characterized as:

“boutique, caring, personalised"

Our boarding community provides unique lifestyle learning opportunities for young men and women from Years 7 to 12. 

There is a gentle daily rhythm to boarding life. Students are well supervised, but in a relaxed and friendly family atmosphere that allows for the individual care of each student. The environment is supportive, promotes individual growth and independence. A Boarding experience can ‘value add’ to your child’s education by maximizing all that Monivae has to offer. Benefits of boarding at Monivae include:

  • a supervised routine study
  • tailored boarding experience
  • mentoring opportunities - academic and sporting
  • improved time management and organizational skills
  • resilience and gratitude
  • life-long friendships
  • safe, country lifestyle

Boarding scholarships from Year 10 are available thanks to the Monivae Foundation, whose membership consists of past boarders. In recognition of the value their boarding experience has provided later in life, the Foundation has established generous scholarships for boarders. Click here for scholarship information. 

Our dedicated boarding team, College Counsellor and teaching staff are trained to make significant positive contributions to the development of the young people in our care.

Small numbers in both the Girls and Boys Boarding ensure support for students is always close at hand. Staff are specifically trained in Mental Health First Aid and Respectful Relationships and we are fortunate to have excellent access to first rate Health Services.

"Monivae College is recognized as a Regional Lead School in student wellbeing".

Our Positive Education Program and whole school focus on mindfulness, resilience and gratitude are now firmly embedded in our culture. As such, all students regularly participate in wellbeing programs. Students care for one another and are encouraged to help themselves through a variety of wellbeing strategies; regular exercise, healthy eating, meditation and technological quiet time.

The Monivae boarding community today brings the added richness of living and learning about students from regional and urban environments, from remote regional areas and from overseas. 

Monivae College has some of the best value fees for tuition and boarding in Australia.
