At Saint Kentigern College, international students can expect the very best education, taught by dedicated teachers who embrace our Christian values and family atmosphere.

Students become part of a busy, vibrant, close-knit community and are offered a ‘world of opportunity’ in academic, cultural, sporting and service activities. 

We recognise that international students have many different reasons for choosing to study away from home but a key factor is the search for a world-class education that will prepare students for successful tertiary study or work in an English-speaking country. The College offers a broad range of subjects for students at all levels. From languages to sciences, applied mathematics, media studies, technology and classics to physical education, music and dance - our students are not short of choices as they enter their senior school years. Our world class facilities are very well equipped and allow for extensive practical involvement. With the benefit of a personal computer laptop programme, our students are introduced to subject learning styles in a multitude of ways.

In recognition that boys and girls learn differently in their early teens, and often achieve better outcomes in single-gender classrooms, Saint Kentigern College operates a very successful parallel education learning model.

In the Middle School, from Years 7-10, boys and girls are taught separately, allowing our younger students to learn in an environment best suited to their different development needs during those crucial, early teenage years.

In the Senior School, Years 11-13, our young men and women work together in a co-educational setting, developing teamwork and collaborative skills that prepare them for tertiary education and life beyond our College gates.

During Year 11, all students complete their NCEA Level 1 qualifications. At Year 12, our senior students are offered a choice of qualifications and may elect to continue with NCEA qualifications or pursue the two year International Baccalaureate Diploma course.
