Wellington Phoenix Football Academy
UPDATE: WPFA website is now live!
Scots College is delighted to work with the Wellington Phoenix Football Academy as its primary education partner and are excited about the opportunities that the College will offer your son.
We have a proven track record of assisting such athletes as Steven Adams (NBA Basketball) and Victor Vito (All Black) achieve their dreams. As an educator and a parent, I believe that education is the greatest gift we can give our children. It is critical in today’s sporting world that students are prepared fully for their professional careers and beyond as well as having a “Plan B” should their dream not eventuate.
Since its foundation in 1916 Scots College has been a boys’ only Independent Boarding School with a Presbyterian heritage. Now an International Baccalaureate World School we offer a dual qualification pathway with a truly global perspective. With 3 distinct schools (Prep, Middle and Senior) within one College we are well positioned to provide a personalised education to help your son reach his potential. The IB Diploma offers students, particularly those from overseas the opportunity to undertake such academy courses while maintain a seamless qualification that is globally recognised.
The College motto is “Virtutem Paret Doctrina” – Let education make the All Round Man; where we develop well rounded young men of substance. Achievement levels by Scots College students have never been higher, preparing students for success at tertiary level and later in life.
A Scots College education offers your son the following features:
- A focus on quality and excellence – we unashamedly set our sights high academically, culturally and in the sporting arena, we encourage excellence and celebrate success
