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, where respect for others, courtesy and consideration, independence, self-discipline and responsibility are fostered, Columba College creates a caring, supportive environment, where hard work is encouraged and achievement praised. 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. The family atmosphere of the school does much to create a sense of belonging and to engender a strong sense of community.
