Alternatives to boarding schools

Alternatives to boarding schools: school student hostels

School student hostels can provide accommodation to students from remote or isolated regions to enable them to attend school. Such hostels provide a ‘home away from home’ environment with appropriate pastoral care and trained staff within communities close to school.

Hostels can provide a more affordable alternative to boarding schools. They offer access to schools, particularly state schools in rural areas, where the hostel may well support and maintain the viability of the school. They also provide temporary accommodation for distance education students and students on excursions. Contact Boarding Australia for further information.
