Our highly-qualified teachers provide a world-class curriculum in a supportive and inspiring learning environment.  Our rangatahi enjoy a safe and culturally diverse learning environment that develops their intellectual, emotional and social potential.

Nelson College offers multiple curriculum pathways tailored for boys. 

Our junior curriculum offers a balanced curriculum with some flexibility with option courses for students to try areas of interest that they may wish to take in the senior school.  The senior curriculum offers a wide range of subject choices, from which students gain credits towards the National Certificate in Education Achievement (NCEA).

Students are supported in their studies by their teachers and Faculty Leaders, as well as Deans, Careers staff and Learning Support Co-ordinators.
