About our College
Saint Kentigern College is an Independent Presbyterian day and boarding school offering the best private education to girls and boys in Years 7–13 (ages 11–18).
The College is located on a large and attractive campus in the suburb of Pakuranga, 16 kilometres from the centre of Auckland, New Zealand. Our students enjoy a park-like setting bordering the waters of the Tamaki Estuary, with extensive playing fields and world class learning facilities. Our boarders enjoy some of the best boarding house ‘real estate’ in Auckland with superb views of the estuary and easy access to many of the College’s superb facilities.
Established in 1953, the College is now a contemporary, state-of-the-art, educational facility which remains true to its traditional Christian faith, values and Scottish heritage.
Our innovative ‘parallel education’ structure offers the best of both worlds to students during their College years. Boys and girls are taught separately in the Middle School (Years 7–10), while Senior School (Years 11–13) students work in a co-educational setting.
Saint Kentigern offers senior students a choice of academic pathway. As an IB World School, our students in Years 12 and 13 can select to either study towards an International Baccalaureate Diploma or the New Zealand qualification, NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement).
With a well deserved reputation for excellence in our academic, sporting and cultural programmes, we are proud to be recognised as one of the best co-educational, independent secondary schools in New Zealand.
Saint Kentigern College opens ‘a world of opportunity’ for the young people who take their educational journey with us.
