Aquinas College is a Catholic co-educational school for 11-18 year olds. The College is vibrant and visually impressive, with superb facilities and high academic standards. Founded in 2003 and set on 10.7 hectares of park-like grounds, the school has modern, spacious buildings designed to incorporate future roll growth.
Aquinas College has an outstanding academic record with exam pass levels well above the national average. Many opportunities also exist in the areas of music, sport and culture to extend all students and help them reach their full potential.
International students thrive in Aquinas’ supportive community atmosphere. Aquinas College only accepts a small number of students from each country which helps them to fully immerse into school life and form quality friendships with New Zealanders.
