Our College is vibrant and diverse yet firmly grounded in its ethos of Catholicism and family.
Marist College, founded in 1928 by the Marist Sisters, is a Catholic secondary school for girls situated in Mt Albert, Auckland. As a faith-based school, we deliver a curriculum that is built on core values that challenge our young women to live and act as Mary the Mother of Jesus would in today's world.
We currently have a roll of 750 students who strive for excellence in all aspects of their school life. Excellent teachers, staff, school community and learning facilities combined with strong academic success, pastoral care systems, and vast cultural and sporting opportunities ensures that our students gain a full and holistic education.
We have strong academic success, offering a curriculum that is recognised internationally. We offer a broad range of subject choice from Years 7 to 13, with a total of 32 subjects available. Acceleration, Scholarship programmes and Gateway opportunities are offered for enrichment and extension. Each year, more than 90% of our students graduate with a Level 3 Certificate and many enrol to study at tertiary level.
Our extra-curricular programmes are extensive. Music programmes include orchestra, band and choir, many of which compete in a variety of regional competitions throughout the year. Our Performing Arts, Drama and Dance programmes develop productions that are performed for audiences both large and small. We also offer over 20 sporting codes ranging from gymnastics through to football.
"The spirit of community and partnership between students, teachers and families, with high expectations and clear boundaries underpinned by Gospel values, is a successful formula."
