Aquinas College is a new, Catholic co-educational secondary school for students aged 11-18 year old. The college is vibrant and visually impressive, with superb facilities and high academic standards.

With a school roll of 800 students across seven year levels, international students thrive in our supportive community atmosphere. We only enrol a small number of students from each country which helps them to fully immerse into school life and form quality friendships with New Zealanders.

A special feature of Aquinas College is the values-based philosophy and close-knit environment of the school. This is evident through the six key 'touchstones' of the College - Scholarship, Family, Truth, Service, Prayer and Joy.
