Boarding at TACAPS is special.
For decades, The Toowoomba Preparatory School extended hospitality and service to boarder families across Australia, and overseas. It is a commitment that has delivered the school a reputation as an exceptional national boarding school.
With the introduction of College in 2014, TACAPS welcomed its first cohort of secondary aged boarder students with the same quality boarding accommodation and care for which it is renowned.
Boarding affords a unique pathway to personal growth, fostered in an atmosphere of safety and genuine care for the individual. Lifelong friendships are made, opportunities to share and collaborate are provided, life and leadership skills are acquired and hobbies developed. Most of all, our boarders delight in their childhood and adolescence years knowing they are part of a nurturing community who keep their best interests at heart.
At TACAPS, we appreciate that parents have plenty to consider when deciding to board their children. Some decisions may be based on distance, others on a belief that boarding, as a life experience, is worthy in itself to take up.
