Join our Family

We accept boarders from Year 7 – 13 with places limited to 120 students. 

Most boarders start with us at the beginning of the school year, and this is preferred as it makes settling in easier. In some circumstances, boarders may be accepted throughout the year if places are available.   Short-term boarding may also be available.

Applications close at the end of May in the year prior to arrival. Applications forms are available from the College office.

Prospective boarders are encouraged to take advantage of our offer of a personal tour of Columba College. This is an excellent opportunity to explore the campus, see what boarding life is like and meet our friendly staff.  To book your tour call the office or email

We look forward to welcoming you to Columba College.
