A unique boys boarding community for Years 5-12 in the Marist tradition.

With a rich heritage and set of traditions, and as the only boys boarding school in the Marist Tradition in Brisbane, we are proud of our boarding offering and determined to uphold our reputation as a Boarding-centric College.

At Marist, we strive to ensure that boarding is a safe, rewarding and socially satisfying experience where boys from a diverse range of backgrounds learn to live, play, work and pray together.

We offer an extensive selection of academic, pastoral care, sporting and recreation activities for our boys to keep active and engaged each term.

Care and commitment to each and every boy is a hallmark of the boarding experience at Marist College Ashgrove. All boys have the right to feel safe, the right to belong and the right to express their individuality. These are our primary responsibilities and that of each boy who chooses to board.

While we do offer flexible boarding options to suit our families, the majority of boys are full time boarders. This helps to create a consistent environment and a unique camaraderie amongst the boys.

Honest and open communication is valued. All families have formal opportunities to contribute to the wellbeing and care of their sons through the Boarding Parent Network Group.

We invite you to review our boarding handbook
