ACG Education

At ACG Education we have created a community of learning that provides outstanding education for students around the world. From early childhood through to higher education, our goal is to help every one of our students unleash their potential and build an exceptional future.

Taylor College

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, the country’s commercial capital and rated one of the world’s most liveable cities.

There is plenty going on in Auckland for those of you who want to understand something of the European, Maori, Pacific and Asian cultures that make up this vibrant, modern metropolis. Auckland’s incomparable setting – between two beautiful harbours – also offers endless opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.

Awatapu College

We value innovation in teaching and learning. Our school is a vibrant and 
diverse community with a strong focus on meeting the individual needs of our student body. This is
 what, Lisa Onland (a previous Dux), had to say about Awatapu:

“There was always an option, always someone there to help you every step of the way, independence 
and space to grow and achieve great things. They always believe in you to do your best.”

Botany Secondary College

Welcome to Botany Downs Secondary College. We are a forward-thinking community specifically designed to meet the needs of 21st century learning and teaching. Botany Downs Secondary College focuses on high expectations of student commitment to achievement; an emphasis on personal development and care for one another; and our desire to form strong partnerships with parents and others in a “learning community”.

Auckland Grammar School

Auckland Grammar School was originally endowed by the Governor of New Zealand, Sir George Grey, in 1850.

Grey made a series of land grants to set up and maintain a grammar school in Auckland that was to be “for the education of all New Zealanders”. In 1869, the School was officially opened in Howe Street with 68 boys on the roll by the Duke of Edinburgh.

During the Depression of the 1880s, girls from the Girls’ High School joined the Auckland College and Grammar School as it was then known, mainly out of economic necessity. In 1899, the School once again became known as Auckland Grammar School, but girls remained on the roll through until 1909.

Having made several moves throughout its first four decades, the School’s current Mountain Road site was acquired between 1911 and 1913.
