The historic Michaelis homestead play host to our Grade 8 and 9 boarders. Michaelis houses 45 boys in six dormitories ranging in size from 6-9 pupils.

Michaelis Hostel provides a home away from home for students who otherwise would not be able to attend due to residing far away from SACS. The Superintendent and his five housemasters do their best to ensure the boys have a happy and fulfilling hostel life.  The boys generally spend a happy two years settling into high school and hostel life.

With the entire campus to their disposal the boys spend very little time indoors and when not at organised sports practices they are encouraged to get outside and play as often as possible. If the weather is bad there is WiFi or entertainment for the boys in the TV lounge, which hosts a pool and table tennis table.

All meals are eaten in the senior, Rosedale Hostel and after dinner the boys generally do two supervised prep sessions before bed.

An exciting development for those boys arriving in 2021 and beyond  will be the complete refurbishment of the ablution facilities, which were completed in December 2020.

SACS has a zero tolerance policy towards any form of initiation or bullying. We pride ourselves on providing a space where there is acceptance and tolerance and everyone can thrive.

We look forward to welcoming the next generation of SACS boarders.
