Immanuel Boarding culture is one of a family style environment with caring ‘house parents’ whose main aim is to build up strong, sensitive and meaningful relationships with the students. 

Immanuel College has a proud history of boarding going back to its inception in 1895 at Point Pass, which is near Eudunda. Back then Immanuel was singularly and exclusively a boarding school.

Now Immanuel Boarding is a unique coeducational experience with both males and females being accommodated in the one complex. Naturally there are areas exclusively for females and for males, and there are also common areas where all students can mix in a friendly, convivial and supportive manner.

Presently there is accommodation for 172 students, with 73 of these being in the main double storey building, 49 in eleven self-contained units and 50 in eight fully equipped houses.

As part of living in the Boarding community, all students are expected to take care of their own personal space as well as contributing to the overall care of the house. Living in community too means being tolerant towards others, helping and assisting where necessary, having fun, but being bold enough to speak out when values are compromised. Our aim living in community is to make things as close to the home and family environment as possible.
