Secure a Place at a World-Leading University

Inspired schools ensure that students achieve outstanding results, providing them with the necessary skills and qualifications to enrol in top-tier universities in New Zealand and abroad. Despite fierce competition for a place at the world’s best universities, one in three Inspired alumni students continues their education at world-renowned Russell Group and Ivy League schools.

Most ACG Tauranga students choose to continue their education in Auckland, Victoria and Otago Universities in New Zealand as well as universities in Australia, America and The United Kingdom. Inspired students are supported throughout their senior school education by in-school University and Careers Counsellors, who understand the universities’ qualification requirements and the needs of individual students.
