Kia Ora and welcome to the International Department of Rongotai College. 

Rongotai College is a school for boys, located in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. Established in 1928, we have been educating outstanding young men for over 90 years. Rongotai is a vibrant school, committed to helping every boy become the best he can be.

Rongotai College has a long history of providing education for international students.  We offer international students a supportive and caring environment while also providing outstanding educational experiences on our expansive campus. International students who have attended Rongotai College in the past have enjoyed studying at our school and taken home fond memories of their time in New Zealand.

Wellington is a wonderful city in which to study. It has a vibrant city centre and varied and stimulating entertainment programmes (e.g. Festival of the Arts, World of Wearable Arts).  It has a beautiful harbour surrounded by bush-covered hills which provide an excellent base for recreational activities and our extensive Outdoor Education programmes. Rongotai College is three minutes from the international and domestic airport, ten minutes from the centre of the city, and two minutes from a surf beach.

We welcome expressions of interest from students who come from a wide range of cultures and learning backgrounds. Should you require any further information, please feel free to contact the college.
