Transition to boarding school is a significant period of adjustment for Indigenous students.

Preboarding covers the period before students even set foot at boarding school. Preboarding incorporates numerous factors that families and schools can put in place to ensure a positive transition to boarding school.

Preboarding elements include visits from teachers/boarding staff to remote communities, visits to prospective boarding schools, building positive first impressions, enabling parent and guardian readiness and facilitating regular family contact.
