Boarding Scholarships

Peace Boarding is a real family environment. Everyone is helpful and supportive. It really is a great place to be! Boarding at Peace has taught me how to be independent. It has taught me a lot of things – too many to put into words. I’ve been a boarder for six years. It has made me the man I’ve become.

Boarding Scholarships are available for students entering Years 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11 for the following year.

Application for a Boarding Scholarship is available for students who:

  • Are current Year 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 students who sit the ACER exam
  • Are Australian citizens or hold a Permanent Residency Visa
  • Require either weekly or full-time boarding

The Boarding Scholarships are partial scholarships, covering 50% of boarding fees only. Noted below are an estimation of the boarding fees for 2021. This boarding fee example includes the 50% Scholarship.

  • Full-time Boarding: $10,000 ($215 per week paid over 46 weeks)
  • Weekly Boarding $8,000 ($174 per week paid over 46 weeks)

Tuition fees are payable in addition to boarding fees. Please click this link to view our current Tuition and Boarding Fees Schedule. Please note, weekly boarding fees are not listed on this current fees schedule.

The Boarding Scholarships are subject to the student's continued high level of academic achievement and exemplary conduct and behaviour. Scholarships are reviewed on an annual basis and scholarship recipients who maintain their level of excellence will have their scholarship (covering 50% of boarding fees) continued into the following school year.

Scholarships are awarded on academic merit and determined through examinations and an interview with the Principal.
