We offer a first-class Catholic education for New Zealand secondary school students and International Students from around the world.

Our school is located in Tauranga — NZ’s fifth-largest city — situated on the stunning Bay of Plenty coastline.

We look forward to welcoming you into our Aquinas family. With a total school roll of just 750, Aquinas students thrive in our supportive, close-knit environment. Each year, we accept only 30 International Students into our well-established international programme.

Take time to explore our website and experience the Aquinas difference.
Our academic excellence is unmatched in the Bay of Plenty and we provide extensive opportunities in sports, the Arts and cultural pursuits. As such, acceptance into Aquinas College is highly sought-after.

Our supportive and qualified International team will ensure you receive the best care and advice during your time in New Zealand. Our personalised approach guarantees you a truly memorable academic and cultural experience at Aquinas College.
