Christ’s College follows the national curriculum (NCEA) and its students consistently out-perform boys from other decile 8–10 schools, with results well above national averages. A high proportion of boys gain Merit or Excellence endorsements. An overview of 2016 results is shown below.
To further extend and challenge them beyond level 3 NCEA, many students also choose to sit NZ Scholarship examinations. Results are always impressive.
Every year a number of boys are also awarded prestigious university scholarships. Over 90% of leaving students pursue tertiary education, either in New Zealand or overseas.
2016 NCEA Results
Merit and Excellence endorsements for Christ's College students compared with all decile 8–10 schools.
|Excellence Endorsement (%)||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3|

|Merit Endorsement (%)*||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3|
|All decile 8–10 schools||41.5||34.1||35|

The NCEA curriculum is internationally recognised and boys who wish to attend university, whether in New Zealand or overseas, are well prepared for the challenges. Each year boys from Christ's College successfully gain admission to world-ranked universities, including Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford.
The following are results achieved at College in 2016:
- 89% of students in Year 11 received an endorsement
- 73% of students in Year 12 received an endorsement
- 73% of students across Levels 1, 2 and 3 received an endorsement
