Kāpiti College

Semper Fidelis – Always Faithful




Kāpiti College is situated in Raumati Beach, a suburb of the town of Paraparaumu, a friendly beach community 40 minutes drive from Central Wellington. The college is metres from the beach and the perfect school for international students to attend.

The college is a decile 8 state coed school and has a roll of over 1500, including 71 international students from many different countries. Kāpiti College has sister schools in China, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand. There are many groups of short term visitors that arrive and are hosted here. Every year groups of Kiwi students visit other countries. Kapiti College is truly an international school.

Kāpiti takes pride in the academic success of its students and the many graduates who have gone on to have stellar careers in the Sciences, Technology, Arts and Business. However, we take equal pride in seeing all of the children who enter the College in Year 9 leave as young men and women, ready and prepared to set their course in the world outside. Whether they stay and work in their own community or travel to the furthest regions of the planet, we want Kāpiti people to be good people who will leave a positive mark on their communities.
