Christ’s College follows the national curriculum (NCEA), and students consistently out-perform boys from other decile 8–10 schools, with results that are well above national averages. A high proportion of boys gain Merit or Excellence endorsements and an overview of 2018 results is shown below.
Many students also choose to sit New Zealand Scholarship examinations, to further extend and challenge them beyond Level 3 NCEA, and results are always impressive.
Every year a number of boys are awarded prestigious university scholarships, and over 90% of leaving students will pursue tertiary education, either in New Zealand or overseas.
