Homestay program for international students
Kristin is an independent, co-educational school of approximately 1550 students from Kindergarten through to Year 13, located in Albany on Auckland's North Shore.
The Junior, Middle and Senior Schools are all situated on the same campus, on 50 acres of park-like grounds with state-of-the-art and award winning facilities. Each school follows the philosophy of Kristin while creating their own distinctive character relative to the age group of the students. Kristin is non-denominational and welcomes students from all cultures and backgrounds.
The first school in New Zealand to introduce the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, Kristin is the only school in the country to offer the IB Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programmes alongside the New Zealand National Curriculum. The school maintains well-developed student exchange links with countries across the globe and regularly welcomes international students into its classrooms.
Kristin is renowned for its progressive approach to education and has been a national leader with innovations such as the school-wide teaching of Mandarin, the development of specialised Middle School teaching methods and a comprehensive and dynamic digital learning programme from Kindergarten to Year 13.
Our vision at Kristin School is to provide students with a superior all-round education, to prepare them to be responsible global citizens, to think creatively, reason critically, communicate effectively and learn enthusiastically throughout life.
