We help kids from
the Northern Territory...

We work with families from remote Northern Territory communities across Arnhem Land, the Tiwi Islands, the Victoria Daly Region and the Roper Gulf Region.

...transition to education in Melbourne...

MITS is a specialist boarding school delivering a Year 7 program to 22 students each year. Our school is located inside the Richmond Football Club at Punt Road Oval and our boarding house is a short walk away on Richmond Hill.

...and onto great Melbourne partner schools...

We work with great Partner Schools across Independent, Government and Catholic sectors. We value Partner Schools which are culturally safe, provide for students with a range of learning needs, and are committed to empowering young Indigenous people and effecting reconciliation.

...to lead lives full of choice & opportunity...

Our alumni aspire to complete school in Melbourne or closer to home, to pursue further tertiary or vocational studies, to gain the skills and experience that will enable them to have great jobs, and to become leaders for their families and communities.

...with the support of 29 staff, 115 volunteers,13 partner schools and 26 remote and regional communities.

MITS acknowledges and respects the traditional custodians of the land on which it is based, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and pays respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
