Auckland International College

About Us

Welcome to Auckland International College

Established in 2003, Auckland International College (AIC) is a NZ independent day and boarding school of approximately 300 students. The specific focus of the school is to prepare students for entry to top universities worldwide. AIC is the only NZ school where all students study the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) and it has the largest number of IBDP students in New Zealand. (?)

From January 2022, AIC will be offering the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) syllabus in Years 9 and 10. The IGCSE lays excellent foundations for the IBDP.

IGCSE in Years 9 and 10 will be followed by 6 months of the Preparation Programme for the IB Diploma where students will develop the inquiry-based learning skills needed for the IB Diploma.

Students joining directly into Year 11 students will study the Preparation Year Programme for the IB Diploma, which includes SAT preparation, while Year 12 and 13 students study the IB Diploma itself.

AIC employs high calibre teachers, and with experience of international education. Specialist staff include university counsellors with expertise and experience in student admissions to top universities around the world, including the UK, US, Canada, Australia, Korea, Japan as well as New Zealand. AIC is also an admissions testing centre for US and UK universities.

AIC has a proven track record of academic achievement. IB Diploma scores are consistently well above the international average in pass rate, median and in top grades.

AIC graduates have received offers from 90% of the worlds top 20 universities (Times Higher Education World University Rankings). Several graduates have been recipients of university scholarships, not only to universities such as the University of Auckland, but also to universities such as Harvard, California Institute of Technology, Stanford, Columbia, Princeton, Oxford, Cambridge and Tokyo. The academic programmes at AIC are challenging.

Enquiries are welcome from those who feel that AIC is an environment appropriate to their high aspirations.
