At Bethlehem College, we’re passionate about four key learning areas: intellectual, cultural, moral and physical. While we have high expectations for academic progress, we know students will enjoy well-rounded learning opportunities - including experience of arts, culture, sports, spiritual and New Zealand life.

As a Christian learning community, we do our best to provide a caring, loving and supportive environment for students, not only at school, but also in their homestay families.

International Staff

The care of all our students is a high priority. Meet your helpful, experienced team.

Do you have questions about the day-to-day needs of our students (including banking, flight details, uniforms, insurance claims and more)? Contact us.
