Rathkeale College

Secondary (Years 9-13, approx age 13-17)

Rathkeale College is a Christian boarding school for boys. Half of our 300 students, including all of the international boys, board in one of the three houses on site. International numbers are limited so that boys will have the greatest opportunity to mix with those who do not share the same first language. Classes in year 12 and 13 are combined with girls from St Mathews College.  Weekend activities are organised for boys who don’t go home and have included surfing, paintball and rafting. The Boarding Houses are staffed by school staff who reside on campus and will encourage the boys to use the school facilities after hours. Class sizes are small with a student teacher ratio of 14:1 which helps keep our academic results above national averages.
