All about Cambridge International

ACG students achieve more Cambridge International awards than any other school in New Zealand.

All ACG schools offer the Cambridge International Curriculum as an alternative to New Zealand’s national curriculum NCEA.

Cambridge International is globally recognised and accepted by universities in New Zealand and around the world. It is flexible, challenging and inspiring. The curriculum is international in philosophy and approach, but can be tailored to local contexts.

We believe it sets a global standard for education, providing our students an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. It allows them to gain the essential skills they need for success at university and in their future careers. It has seen our students accepted to top universities in New Zealand and around the world.

Cambridge International is characterised by its exam-based assessments and clear benchmarking. We believe an end-of-year exam system allows teachers and students to explore questions to a depth and a quality that educators involved in internal assessment benchmarking simply do not have the time for.

A common misconception about Cambridge is that it is only for highly academic students.

In reality, Cambridge is a flexible curriculum that can be easily tailored to all levels of academic ability.

ACG Schools are incredibly proud of our academic offering and welcome you to visit us at Open Days or contact us at any time to discuss how Cambridge International would work for your child.
