Boarding at AIC

AIC Boarding House
AIC Boarding House

The existing AIC boarding house will close in July 2019. AIC Council is pleased to announce the decision to purchase a new property suitable for AIC Year 11 boarding and have begun a property search. The new boarding house will accommodate students from overseas until the end of Year 11 to help them settle into their new school and country. 

IB Diploma students will move into AIC homestay during Years 12 and 13 when they will benefit from their own room with individual study space suited to the IB Diploma itself.

At AIC boarding we aim for students to develop inter-cultural understanding, independence and a sense of community.

AIC boarding is managed with clear guidelines for students. The supervisors who care for the students are from a variety of countries and are a professional and caring group of adults. Several leadership opportunities are available to senior boarders and a house competition is encouraged.


The boarding house facilities include a BBQ area, pianos, TV and games room, fitness room, study hall and a range of recreation facilities including a basketball court. 

Boarding staff supervise prep for students every day. 


AIC boarders enjoy a catering system which blends nutritional needs with the dietary preferences of our student population. Our catering team is able to cater for any special needs including religious, vegetarian and allergies.

A high priority is placed on meeting the 5+ fruit and vegetables per day and students are encouraged to make healthy choices. Fruit and snacks are available after school for students. Facilities are also available for students to prepare their own hot and cold drinks, snacks and special food.

Breakfast is available every morning in the dining room with a selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast and spreads as well as a variety of hot options through the week.

Lunches are delivered to the school, and students make their own sandwich style lunch oncea week.

Dinners are served in the dining room every evening. For a sample menu please click here
