St John’s College is one of the select schools of the Waikato based on a long Marist tradition. Catholic boys enjoy a first class academic education within a richly diverse community where young men are prepared for life in the 21st Century. St John’s men are expected to strive for personal excellence in academic, sporting and cultural endeavours in a context of strong Catholic Values.

A modern learning environment, located adjacent to the University of Waikato, our school provides excellent facilities in all technologies, especially ICT, and teachers who model good relationships. St John’s develops fine young men ready to make their mark on the world. Our Marist Men leave St John’s capable of building strong relationships, highly resilient and confident of their place in the future.
