ACG Primary, Middle & Senior School Programmes

Personal Achievement, Examination Success, Proven Quality.

ACG is New Zealand’s largest provider of quality private school education, with five co-educational day schools in Auckland and Tauranga. 

All ACG Schools offer the University of Cambridge International Examinations: IGCSE, AS and A Levels. ACG Senior College also offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. These qualifications are internationally recognised, highly respected and accepted by top universities worldwide.

A clear focus on academic outcomes has enabled ACG students to achieve over 307 Top in the World and Top in New Zealand Cambridge International Examination awards. 

English language support is available at all ACG Schools. ACG owns and operates international schools in Indonesia and Vietnam.

ACG Schools offer a number of benefits to students:

Internationally recognised qualifications
Accepted, respected and understood by schools and universities worldwide.

A clear focus on academic achievement
In a learning environment where each student is nurtured and challenged by ACG's experience and committed staff.

A personalised learning experience
Where each student is valued and each student's accomplishments are recognised.

A personal tutor system
Where each student receives assistance and encouragement to set goals and evaluate achievements.

More teaching time
ACG Schools have longer lessons (70 to 85 minutes), to ensure individual attention and a variety of learning experiences.

An online learning system
ACG Schools use Blackboard online learning, through which unique and specific course and subject resources support the development of each student while allowing for parent access and oversight.

Convenient locations in Auckland
With four ACG Schools strategically located around Auckland and one in Tauranga, there is a school within convenient reach for students. Where public transport services are limited, ACG Schools offer dedicated bus services to make access safe and convenient.
