St Mary's College is a Catholic School for Girls from Yrs 7-13 (ages 11-18) and located in one of Auckland's most safe and respectable suburbs, Ponsonby, in Central Auckland a 10 minute walk to Auckland's CBD/city centre. It is the oldest girls school in New Zealand and is consistently one of the top academic performing schools in New Zealand with a pass rate over 95% at each NCEA level. It offers a rich and diverse range of learning experiences, with three levels of ESOL (English classes) offered across the timetable, an award winning School of Music and many different sporting opportunities. The school has 1000 students and only 40 international students so the level of care and support for each student is excellent both in school and in their homestay accomodation.
We believe that a student who chooses to study at St Mary’s College in Auckland will have a nurturing, academic and rewarding experience. Last year all our students who graduated went on to University or a Tertiary provider. We are committed to offering the best secondary education possible so students can succeed at University and beyond. We care deeply and have a respectful and inclusive environment where students are treated as individuals and supported to be successful.
