As one of New Zealand’s leading private schools, Scots College been helping boys prepare for their place in the world for nearly 100 years.
The diversity of cultures, faiths and experiences at the College enriches our learning environment. This benefits all students and is an important part of the Scots experience. We create global citizens – boys who are equipped for life as balanced, compassionate, motivated and socially aware young men.
We understand that a successful transition to an internationally recognised university is the ultimate aim for many students. Small class sizes, dedicated teachers, outstanding facilities and individualised attention helps us to prepare boys for a smooth pathway to tertiary education either in New Zealand or abroad. Our dual curriculum ensures students have a wide range of academic pathways.
We also understand that academic achievement is only one part of the picture.
We strive to instil in each of our students a life-long commitment to learning and provide a nurturing environment in which young men can achieve their academic, spiritual, physical, cultural and social potential, for the greater good and in service to others.
At Scots College we offer a full range of support services for our International Students, providing a safe and happy learning environment. Our international services include an orientation programme, English language support (ESOL), accommodation support, and an extensive co-curricular programme. We provide access to first language support for all International Students.
I invite you to contact us to discuss how we can help your son achieve his educational potential and career ambitions.
