Financial support towards fees is available, and there are different types of scholarships on offer.
The ACG Founders Scholarship honours a group of people whose vision, expertise and dedication led to the establishment of the Senior College of New Zealand in 1995.
From 2018, one Scholarship is awarded annually. The recipient will be a student who is currently studying at one of ACG’s secondary schools in New Zealand and who plans to commence a course of university study the following year. It may be held in conjunction with other awards.
The Scholarship will recognise outstanding academic ability as well as personal qualities for future success, such as integrity, leadership, boldness of vision and exceptional drive, energy and a capacity for work.
The inaugural recipient of the ACG Founders Scholarship, Alex Pentchev, graduated in 2018. Now he is studying Medicine at the University of Sydney and aspires to work in medical research.
“The scholarship has opened up fantastic opportunities such as semester exchanges to universities all around the world. I no longer have to worry about finances and I can focus solely on my studies, which has been extremely helpful during the stressful transition to university. All around, it feels as if a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I now have the ability to do anything I want in education without worrying about money.” – Alex Pentchev
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.

If your family has four or more children, a scholarship may be available, providing you meet ACG Tauranga’s enrolment criteria.
In a family of four children, your youngest child may receive a full-tuition scholarship. If you have five or more children, you may be awarded a scholarship to the value of 25% of the total fees payable.
In both cases, the scholarship applies only while four or more of your children are fully enrolled at ACG Tauranga.
