From the Executive Principal
Christ’s College enjoys a stunning location at the heart of New Zealand’s second largest city. Our campus is unique - a tourist destination for the many thousands who visit the Garden City every year. New Zealand is a small country, which leads the world, not only because we have done a day’s work before Europe is out of bed. What are increasing numbers of families looking to New Zealand education from abroad for?
The country is clean, beautiful, and safe; our education system emphasises choice, relevance, and above all a holistic approach. Students who come to our school learn so much more than their academic subjects - they find out they can do things they never imagined before - sport, the performing arts, or personal goals in their non-native language, public speaking, forming broad and lasting friendship groups.
New Zealand’s national examination system (NCEA) takes our students on to universities of their choice all over the world. Read some profiles of some of our recent leavers on these pages. Christ’s College is a launch-pad for outstanding careers; our boys leave here ready to take on whatever challenge they set for themselves. Our alumni form strong professional groups all over the world; the paths they have trodden show the way clear for outstanding international careers amongst our leavers.
Christ’s College is a powerful choice for international study. We are a school offering a unique blend of an incomparable New Zealand experience, and global recognition second to none. Christchurch international airport is consistently voted the best in Australasia, and is on our doorstep. Look towards the city, tree lined avenues and parks take you to the school. Look the other way, snow capped mountains against a clear blue sky.
We invite you to experience so much more than just a top quality international education.
