St Monica’s College Boarding

“A partnership of St Monica’s and St Augustine’s Colleges”

St Monica’s students have an opportunity of boarding at St Augustine’s College in Chavoin Residence and attending St Monica’s College for all their secondary classes. This opportunity is offered on both a weekly and full-time basis. St Monica’s and St Augustine’s Colleges are eight city blocks apart – less than two kilometres.

The boarding program is the responsibility of St Augustine’s. Our girls board in a separate Girls Residence, Chavoin House, under the supervision of female staff. The girls and boys are together for meals and organized recreation activities.

St Monica’s College girl boarders are transported daily on a bus provided by St Augustine’s. Their lunches are brought over daily and served at St Monica’s College.


St Monica’s and St Augustine’s are uniquely placed to provide the convenience of having their sons and daughters in the same location for boarding. We can offer the benefits of education in a city school: wide curriculum choice; well-developed co-curricular offerings; extra facilities; the broadening of horizons and opening opportunities that may not be readily available in a smaller country town. Girls from country areas are able to access single-gender education.

To be eligible to be enrolled as a boarding student at St Monica’s, girls would need to meet the enrolment criteria for both St Monica’s and St Augustine’s and be accepted by each Principal. For enrolment enquiries contact the Principal of St Monica’s College.

The boarding fee is all-inclusive, there are no “hidden extras” other than for separate activities outside the College that parents or students may organize for themselves. Included are:

  • Full accommodation (Each residence is air-conditioned)
  • Three meals each day plus a morning snack
  • Supervised evening study, with tutorial assistance available if required
