Boarding Options

At Scots we have developed a range of flexible boarding options which reflect the varying needs of our community. These Casual Boardingoptions include:

  • Full-time boarding
  • Weekly Boarding
  • Casual Boarding

Full Time Boarding

Your child will be well cared for at Scots.  Full Time boarders live in the Boarding House for the duration of each school term and enjoy participating in co-curricular activities before and after school and on weekends.  They go home for holidays, on scheduled exeats or by arrangement. For example, to attend birthday parties, sporting competitions or to visit friends and family.

Full time boarders participate in regular weekend activities which we orgnaise based on what the students would like to do. These include bike rides, visits to Lake Hume and local sporting events, films, sailing, excursions, as well as parent and student trips to Melbourne, Sydney or Canberra for cultural or sporting events. Scots is close to the Australian Alps and the many snow sports on offer and there are regular trips with boarders to the resorts.

Weekly Boarding

Weekly Boarders reside in the Boarding House from Sunday night (or Monday morning) to Friday afternoon. This combines the best of both worlds – that of a supportive boarding experience and quality time with family and friends on the weekend. This means that the majority of study and school activities take place at supervised sessions throughout the week, leaving them free to spend time with their families or maintain their part time job or sporting commitments at the weekend.

Weekly boarding students have the option to stay in the boarding house on weekends (casual fee applies) when required.

Casual Boarding

Casual Boarding provides a convenient solution to those parents who are juggling busy lives.   If you need to travel out of town or need help to balance involvement in school activities – casual boarding can help you.

As a parent, you can have peace of mind knowing your child is being cared for in a safe, supportive and familiar environment with great food and support with homework from academic staff during prep.  Casual Boarding also provides our day students get a terrific opportunity to enjoy the company of their boarder friends and participate in the full boarding life.
