Our schools


Academic Colleges Group (ACG) is a leading independent provider of educational services.  ACG opened its first school in 1995 with a new concept in education - one that would make a difference to people who wanted to advance their lives and their futures.  Today, ACG comprises ten schools in three countries and is New Zealand's only multi-national group of schools.


Our efforts to cater for the needs of the individual have seen us develop a range of schools for young people and their families who have put their trust in us to provide a first-class education. ACG's Schools have been developed to offer the best educational pathways leading to respected universities.

ACG offers educational programmes, from Preschool and Kindergarten to Primary, Middle (Intermediate) and Senior (High) School. ACG Schools offer the University of Cambridge International Examinations and the International Baccalaureate (Pre-IB and IB Diploma). ACG delivers Intensive Academic English Courses and IELTS Preparation. ACG is New Zealand’s largest provider of University Foundation Studies. International students from over 40 countries are currently enrolled in ACG programmes.
