Columba is an area school, with boys and girls in the Year 0 – 6 junior campus and girls only in the Years 7 – 13 middle and senior school. We have Presbyterian foundations and values, and we are a boarding school.

We have an experienced, collegial teaching staff that builds strong relationships with students and the community. Our classrooms and teaching programmes are well resourced and we have a committed and helpful team of support staff.

Columba students are friendly, polite and hard working, and make the most of the many academic, cultural, sporting and service opportunities available to them. The NZC is the foundation of all of our teaching programmes, and our NCEA and Scholarship results are among the best in New Zealand. Our programmes make use of the spectacular natural surroundings of Dunedin and the wider Otago area.

Teachers at Columba College are part of the pastoral life of the school, as form teachers. All staff participate in the special character of the College by attending weekly chapel services, a College church service each term, and integrating the Christian ethos of the College into their teaching programmes.
