ACG Senior College (age 15 - 18) Auckland


ACG Senior College enjoys the rich culture that international students bring.

When considering ACG Senior College as an option for study, some students think that, because the College has extremely high academic results, all students who come here are brilliant. This is not so. There is a range of student ability.

However, what makes the difference is that students who come tend to have many of the following attributes and the rest takes care of itself.
•    Students come with a positive attitude.
•    Students commit to working hard.
•    Students strive for excellence.
•    Students share positive relationships with their teachers.
•    Students take part in the wider life of the school.
•    Students enjoy their day.
•    Students have a safe environment in which to work.
•    Students celebrate their own success and that of others.

School is more than attending lessons and reciting information. This College enjoys discussion, critical thinking, owning one's own ideas, voicing them with confidence and taking risks. We enjoy students who are active learners and share a desire to do the very best they can. That is why we gain great academic success. Also, we encourage you to take responsibility for your learning and take an active role in the co-curricular activities we run.

Annually, the College has approximately 50 international students from Asia and Europe predominantly. The aim of the College is to acknowledge the special nature of international students but, in essence, to integrate them as fully as possible.

As a College, we welcome applications from international students who wish to experience a high level of academic and intellectual challenge in an internationally recognised rigorous examination system; Cambridge International Examinations.
