New Zealand’s National Certificates of Educational Achievement (NCEA) are national qualifications for senior secondary school students.
NCEA challenges students of all abilities to acquire skills and knowledge. It enables students to gain credits from both traditional school curriculum areas and alternative programmes.
Developing creativity and skills of analysis, reasoning and evaluation, as well as working independently or within a group, are all important parts of NCEA to prepare students for university and a rapidly changing world.
When you are away from home, living with a locally based family is a great way to settle in, feel at home, make new friends and experience New Zealand student life to the full. The homestay accommodation offers a supportive family environment.
At Long Bay College, we are proud to foster a learning and social environment based on our core values of Care, Respect, Creativity and Community, which supports our students as they navigate the teenage years and beyond. We offer a network of capable, dedicated and caring adults who are available to our students and their family members to reach out to at any time.
