There is a revolution in Australian education whereby private boarding schools are actively enabling Indigenous students to reap the rewards of a quality education.

This research has the potential to cultivate Indigenous talent and academic excellence, develop strategies that transform the lives and communities of those involved in Indigenous education programs, contribute to closing the gap in educational and economic outcomes for Indigenous Australians, and materially strengthen the socio-economic fabric of Australia at large
