Edgewater College is a small multi-cultural school situated in close proximity to safe swimming beaches and shopping malls, yet only 30 minutes from Auckland CBD and airport. Providing a genuine cultural experience to our international students, promoting the diverse culture that Edgewater College has to offer and the high level of pastoral care is a high priority. We offer an all-round experience of the true Kiwi lifestyle.
The essence of the college is that teachers get to know students well and have time for each individual, which can be more difficult in a large college. Every student is encouraged to set their own goals and expectations and given the encouragement and support they need to achieve. The teachers are caring and committed to the students, helping them achieve academically.
As a school, we have a clear view of where we are going and what we want to achieve. Educating for Excellence and Making a Positive Difference.
