The boarding community at Sacred Heart College provides accommodation and care for girls and boys in Years 7 -12. Boarders come to Sacred Heart from country areas throughout South Australia and regional areas from other States, Territories and overseas.
The boarding community at Sacred Heart College adds great richness and diversity to the life of the school, and provides boarders with a wide range of choices and opportunities that may not be available in rural areas or in smaller country schools.
Since 1998, the College has enrolled both girls and boys in the Boys and Girls Boarding Houses, which provide modern, family style facilities for the students nearby the beach.
Families value the opportunity to send both their daughters and sons to the same school. The boarding culture is an important part of Sacred Heart College's identity and tradition. Many of the boarders have parents who were educated at Sacred Heart College, so there is a strong sense of community and family involvement with the school.
