Loreto College, Marryatville, is a day and boarding school for girls. Located five minutes from Adelaide’s CBD, the College is situated in the picturesque eastern suburbs. Loreto’s boarding community includes girls from rural, regional, interstate and international locations, who form a tight knit community. More than just providing a place to stay, boarding at Loreto is a unique experience that provides opportunities for girls to grow and flourish in a happy, safe and comfortable environment.
Independence and maturity are cultivated with support from our dedicated team of boarding supervisors, including a Head of Boarding and live-in supervisors, who have empathy with and understanding of the special needs of young women. We are also resourced with excellent support staff that care for the boarders’ every need, including an internal catering team led by a Head Chef and a full-time registered nurse who operates the College’s infirmary.
In addition to a broad range of subject choices, our girls are able to take part in whole school leadership opportunities as well as many boarding specific leadership roles. The girls are also challenged out of school hours with an exciting social and activity program, in addition to the College’s extensive extra-curricular program.
Loreto’s boarding precinct consists of several purpose-built and modern houses, designed with issues such as space, privacy and communal living in mind. As well as a variety of accommodation and leisure areas suited to each age group, each girl has her own, private room. Living alongside the school grounds, the boarders have around-the-clock access to all the school’s facilities, including the gymnasium and fitness centre, tennis courts, music centre, library and computer rooms. In addition, state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, along with the dining room, study area and main common area in the original Karrawood House provide ideal spaces for communal activities. Expansive grounds provide several private, green, open spaces as well as tennis courts and two boarders-only swimming pools for leisure activities. A wireless network also ensures the girls have anywhere, anytime access to the internet.
