Message from the Principal

Tracey Dykstra


At ACG Senior College we are proud of our two international programmes and reputation for academic success. Achieving is important at ACG Senior College but we also develop and support students to reach their full potential.

Schools that provide for the future ensure that they offer social, academic and extracurricular preparation in a supportive environment. ACG Senior College is student centred and treats students like young adults. Our unique College provides real leadership opportunities because our student leaders initiate and run their own portfolio of activities.

Every student is supported by our tutor system, which provides regular one-on-one meetings with teachers, and encourages independence, creativity and self-directed learning.

Our new Year 11 Diploma is tailored for both Cambridge and International Baccalaureate pathways. Learning time is maximised and the best teachers make the most difference to develop a love of learning. Both these programmes expand critical thinking and deep learning, and offer students independence and flexibility to work with their teachers on their passions.

We prepare students for success in tertiary studies through excellent teaching, independent thinking and exam preparation, which ensures entry into New Zealand and international universities.
