Tauranga Boys' College aims to be "Best for Boys" by being dedicated exclusively to meeting the educational, social and developmental needs of boys as they journey from boyhood to manhood.

Our unwavering focus is on being better than before. We have a commitment to continuous improvement as we challenge our boys to strive for excellence in academic, sporting and cultural activities in a male context. Boys are challenged to enquire and to reflect on their actions, and to be motivated to achieve their potential. We provide a supportive environment with strong leadership, clear direction, and high expectations.

We are proud of our schools traditions and its heritage, whilst being firmly focused on preparing our young men to face the challenges of the future. I invite you as an International Student to be part of our College and its future and therfore look forward to meeting you.
