Our boarders form a special part of the College community and history.
An outstanding personal experience with city and country benefits
Boarding at St Gregory’s College offers students an outstanding individualised schooling experience at an affordable price. Set on approximately 300 acres and less than an hour from Sydney, our College affords families the benefits of a city-based education in a uniquely rural setting.
Boys from all over Australia
The College has five Boarding Houses, offering individual rooms, that bring boys together from all over Australia; predominately from country NSW, but also places such as Lord Howe Island, Groote Eylandt, Queensland, the Northern Territory and ACT.
Committed, caring, supportive staff
The boarding staff, many of whom are also teachers at the College, are committed to the quality care and supervision of the boarders, under the direction of the Director of Boarding. Supportive relationships are forged, which are based on trust and mutual respect so that boys are valued for their individual qualities and talents. It is this teamwork that ultimately provides the Boarder with the support and space to grow and develop to the fullest. A wide variety of young men, individually different and from a range of diverse backgrounds and geographic locations, learn to live, pray, work and play together.
Extra study opportunities
Weekend and evening tutoring, the Learning Centre after school and at times on weekends is available for any boy to take advantage of. Boarding Houses have comfortable and well-maintained facilities, with aesthetically pleasing study space for students and good access to other College facilities after school and on weekends.

Free recreational use of College facilities
In their recreation time, boys have the opportunity to use the many College facilities, including; the playing fields, swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, cricket nets and the College Learning Centre is also open for extended hours for the boarders.
