Consultation, Advisory Services and Review


A Boarding Australia team of qualified and experienced boarding professionals uses a framework aligned to the National Standard to review boarding schools and facilities.

In recent months Boarding Australia has conducted several reviews to assist boards of governance and boarding communities consider their offerings.

When the National Boarding Standard for Australia Schools and Residences was developed Boarding Australia representatives were part of the writing.  Then BA developed  ‘Quality Service for Boarding Schools and Residences’ a framework which links directly to the Standard.
