Financial support towards fees is available, and there are different types of scholarships on offer.
This is a performance-based academic scholarship available only to new students in Years 7 to 13. The criteria for awards is based on academic achievement, although consideration is also given to achievement in sport and the arts.
The award covers part of the school tuition fees and financial hardship is not a consideration in awarding the scholarships.
If the Principal believes a prospective student is worthy of a scholarship but they don’t meet the academic criteria, a request can be sent to the Director of Schools for special consideration.
The Aspire Scholarship is offered by the New Zealand Government to students from low-income families who would like to attend a New Zealand private secondary school. The scholarship contributes up to $15,000 per year for private secondary school fees and up to $1,500 per year for course-related costs.
To apply for the Aspire Scholarship, fill out an application form for the student, and send in hard copy to the Ministry of Education National Office. The deadline for Aspire Scholarships 2018 applications is 19 May 2017.
Additional information can be found on the Ministry of Education website.
