Empathy, compassion, and respect are applauded – and cultivated – at ACG Tauranga. Our students think about the world around them, and care deeply about their community and environment.

A unique system

Our unique Tutor System allocates a tutor to every student, for mentoring, coaching and ongoing support throughout the year. Coaching is carried out in groups and on a one-to-one basis and successfully contributes to lifting student achievement.

The focus is on improving student achievement through:

  • encouragement 
  • setting educational goals 
  • developing action plans 
  • provide additional support 
  • providing guidance with study programmes 
  • monitoring progress and providing feedback to parents and deans 
  • raising expectations 
  • building trust 

Empathy, compassion, respect

ACG Tauranga students are encouraged to develop empathy, compassion and respect for others; to think about the world around them, and to care about their community and environment. We have a strong commitment to service and strive to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

Cultivating meaningful relationships with teachers and classmates helps our students grow into compassionate, caring global citizens – powerful attributes that are not just highly valued at our school, but in all corners of the globe.

Care for international students

Our International Student Dean provides extra pastoral care and welfare support to our international students, and acts as a liaison between students, their parents, homestay families and the school.
