Dear parents, students, alumni and AIC supporters


Thank you for your continued support.
With AIC having 6 months to go before closing its doors,
we have received several inquiries asking,
if we have reconsidered our decision as a result of the borders opening to international students.
Regrettably, our decision to close remains.
AIC appreciates your understanding as well as your continued support until May 2023.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Kind regards
AIC council

AIC NOT OPENING 26TH OCTOBER

After further consideration and reading the latest documentation from the MOE it is clear that opening on Tuesday is for NCEA and other students in year 11,12,13 to undertake their assessments and their exams and the numbers of students attending should be minimised.  This is certainly a change from the announcements last week and the clarity I […]

Auckland International College to close in 2023

On Monday 1 November, Auckland International College (AIC) announced that it would be closing its doors as a result of the uncertainty posed by New Zealand’s COVID-19 pandemic response.

New Zealand’s only school exclusively dedicated to providing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), AIC was founded in 2003 for international and domestic students and has enjoyed unparalleled academic success.

The impact of travel restrictions and ongoing lockdown measures, has seen the current roll fall to 136 students across Years 11 to 13. And, the school’s future ability to continue to attract students has been severely impacted.

The AIC Council said that the school would remain open until June 2023 to enable current Year 12 and 13 students to complete the two-year IBDP.

AIC Council Chair, Nigel Burton said that in making the decision, their focus has been on ensuring current students are not negatively impacted.

“It is a matter of integrity for us to ensure that our students can complete their two-year IBDP uninterrupted and without distraction,” he said.

Teaching staff will be incentivised to remain at the school until after the official closing, including assisting 2023 graduates with their university applications, and will receive generous redundancy allowances.
&nbsp
AIC has been a private education success story for New Zealand, providing a genuine global pathway for domestic and international students. The school has earned a global reputation for academic excellence, including achieving a 100% IBDP student pass rate in 2021. AIC students have been offered admission to nine of the world’s top 10 universities as ranked by the Times Educational Supplement (TES).

“We’re deeply saddened to be closing our doors. We have enjoyed developing a wonderful, engaged community where dedicated and talented teachers have helped students achieve the highest levels of academic success. The closure of Auckland International College is a genuine loss to New Zealand from an educational, economic and cultural exchange perspective,” Nigel Burton said.
