Indigenous Education & Boarding Australia

Over half of IEBA Directors identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders.

Our VISION is that all Indigenous students attain educational outcomes to be successful in their future choices.

Our MISSION is to Close the Education Gap through Boarding.

Indigenous Education & Boarding Australia was launched as the new trading name for Boarding Australia in March 2019 at the 2nd National Indigenous Education and Boarding Symposium. Since our inception in 1995 we have provided advocacy and national leadership for all student boarding services.

Our focus is on policies, practices, systems and innovation from across Australia to communicate, educate, inspire and influence the work of others in supporting Indigenous student education and boarding.

Indigenous Education & Boarding Australia is an independent national organisation with effective working relationships with Independent, Catholic, Christian, Lutheran and government education providers and operates from a base of neutrality.
