Boarding Life at MCA

The spirit and tone of our residences is one of harmony and happiness. The genuine friendships forged as boarders continue well beyond graduation.

THE MARIST EXPERIENCE EXTENDS BEYOND THE CLASSROOM WALLS

Marist College Ashgrove is known for building young men of character and excellence. The education we provide develops boys in all areas of life - spiritually, relationally, emotionally and academically. Our boarding services allow us to extend this commitment after the school bell rings.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Living far away from family isn't easy for young people, so we provide all of the comforts of home. Students who board with us become a tight-knit family of brothers who live, learn, eat and play together. Many of our boarding supervisors are graduates of Marist, so they understand the experiences our boarders go through and how to provide the best support.

Come and see Marist for yourself.

BUILDING HABITS THAT REMAIN FOR LIFE

We set the foundations for a healthy balance between working and play, with dedicated study times where tutors and teachers are on hand to help, and ample time to relax and unwind away from the fast pace of College life. Students are fed a wholesome diet prepared by our in-house dietician to fuel their growing minds and bodies.

NEVER A DULL MOMENT

Our dedicated recreation officer ensures each student has time to relax while given opportunities to do activities they enjoy with their mates. We organise exciting outings regularly, including the beach, the movies and sporting games so the boys always have something to look forward to. Our extensive sporting facilities are available to boarders after school hours, including the 50m pool, weights room, and tennis and basketball courts.
