About our College

Our ambition is to enable each of our students to maximise their potential through exceptional learning and personal development opportunities. Our exceptional teachers and flexible learning approach  encourages self-aware, independent young adults to reach their full potential and make a positive impact in the world.


Our individualised approach supports our students to achieve their academic goals and fulfil their university and career aspirations. We enable our students to become self-motivated, active learners, and encourage intellectual freedom and thought leadership.

ACG Senior College students are proud to be part of a college where they are treated respectfully and valued for both their intellect and individuality.  Located in the vibrant heart of the inner-city, ACG Senior College offers a unique learning environment which is constantly evolving, and where students flourish and prosper.

As the only school in New Zealand to offer both the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and the Cambridge International Examinations, our students have the benefit of choosing a qualification that best suits their needs. Our combined Year 11 programme offers a taste of both, enabling students to make an informed decision about which they’d like to continue in Years 12 and 13.

Our teachers are front-runners in their subject areas, delivering lessons that are well-prepared and purposeful, and inspiring students to appreciate higher learning and critical thinking. They work in partnership with their students, fostering intellectual discourse and shared learning.

While striving for academic excellence, we also know that arts, technology and culture are fundamental in creating balanced, well-rounded individuals. We encourage and support participation in sports and a diverse range of extra-curricular activities led by our student leaders, and our reputation for music and performing and visual arts is widespread. ACG Senior College offers a holistic, bespoke approach to learning that supports and extends the unique abilities of each student.
