Boarding Overview

Ravenswood has been a Boarding school since 1935, for girls from country NSW, from interstate as well as many overseas countries. More recently, some of our more local Day Girls have chosen to be Weekly Boarders, to help them focus on study and get the most out of school life.

Ravenswood offers a boutique boarding experience for up to 50 students in Years 7–12. The Ravenswood Residential College (RRC) is a home away from home and offers a safe and caring environment for all Boarders. Local, rural, interstate and overseas students form a ‘family’ community, where they share experiences and develop the independent living skills required post school.

We are able to offer Full, Weekly and Short-Stay Boarding. Some Global Exchange students also stay in the RRC as either Weekly or Full Boarders. These cultural exchanges provide a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn about the cultures of various parts of the world.

All the facilities of home are provided for our Boarders throughout the school term. With the close proximity to school, students are able to participate in many school activities which require early morning and late evening involvement.

Information on Boarding Fees can be found on the Fees page.
