Welcome to Columba College one of New Zealand’s most distinguished schools with an established tradition of academic excellence and all-around achievement. For over a century, Columba College has been preparing students to serve, contribute and succeed, wherever their path may take them.
Based in the Presbyterian faith, Columba College offers a holistic approach to education in a caring, supportive environment where our students are taught to think critically and creatively, to respond generously and compassionately and to live by values that have stood the test of time.
Welcome to Columba College
One of thirteen Presbyterian schools around the country, Columba College is a school where respect for others, courtesy and consideration, independence, self-discipline and responsibility are fostered. At Columba, hard work is encouraged and achievement praised.
I feel immensely privileged to be leading such a special school. Offering co-education in Years 0-6 and single sex girls’ education from Years 7-13, we help educate confident, articulate, caring, resilient young people who can stand proud and tall in any context. Young people who not only have a voice but something to say. Young people who have gained the skills and qualifications they need to remain open to possibility and able to seize opportunity.
Students are nurtured to participate and contribute fully and meaningfully, whether it be academically, in sport, in the arts, in leadership or through service. I warmly invite you to come and experience the Columba difference.
