Financial support towards fees is available, and there are different types of scholarships on offer.

ACG Parnell College Scholarship

This is a performance-based academic scholarship available only to new students in Years 7 to 13. The criteria for awards is based on academic achievement, although consideration is also given to achievement in sport and the arts.

The award covers part of the school tuition fees and financial hardship is not a consideration in awarding the scholarships.

If the principal believes a prospective student is worthy of a scholarship but they don’t meet the academic criteria, a request can be sent to the Director of Schools for special consideration.

Scholarship applications for 2018 are now closed.

Aspire Scholarship

The Aspire Scholarship is offered by the New Zealand Government. If your family is on a low income and you want your child to attend a New Zealand private secondary school like ACG Parnell College, this scholarship has been designed for you.

It contributes up to $15,000 per year towards your child’s private secondary school fees and up to $1,500 per year for course related costs. To apply for the Aspire Scholarship, fill out an application form for your child.

Applications for Aspire Scholarships for 2018 closed on 19 May 2017. For further information please visit the Ministry of Education website

Sibling Scholarship

Larger families may qualify for a scholarship, subject to the school’s enrolment criteria being met and accepted.

If your family has four children attending ACG Parnell College at any one time, we may determine that your youngest child receive a full tuition scholarship.

If your family has five or more children, a scholarship to the value of 25% of the total amount of fees payable may be awarded.

The scholarship provisions apply only while at least four of your children are attending ACG Parnell College.
