"The thing I love most about being a boarder at Loreto is the strong sense of community that it brings. It is a homely and close environment where I am able to reach my full potential while being surrounded by the support of my closest friends and boarding staff. Boarding at Loreto has provided me with countless opportunities that I otherwise would not have access to."
