We have high expectations of all our students and we are proud to be placed, year after year, amongst the top performing academic schools in New Zealand.
All students in Year 11 undertake NCEA Level 1 qualifications. At the end of Year 11, Saint Kentigern offers senior students a choice of academic pathways. As an IB World School, our students in Years 12 and 13 can elect to either study towards an International Baccalaureate Diploma or the New Zealand qualification, NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement). Whichever qualification a student chooses, you can be assured they will be very well prepared for life beyond the College.
The College offers a broad range of subjects that prepare students well for tertiary education and beyond. Our students are not short of choices as they enter their Senior School years and they are well prepared to command advantageous places at top universities in both New Zealand and overseas.
Our commitment to the academic success of each student is clear; the best teaching staff, specialised learning environments and ‘a world of opportunity’ in our academic and co-curricular programmes to prepare our young men and women for the future.
