About BMC

Principal's Welcome

Blue Mountain College is located in a stunning rural setting between the university city of Dunedin and the adventure capital of New Zealand, Queenstown. We're a small school catering for students aged 11-20yrs.

 

We pride ourselves on knowing each student and his/her family personally, providing excellent pastoral care. We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) school. Students are expected to be respectful, responsible and inclusive when interacting with peers, staff and the community.

 

Our individualised learning pathways lead to outstanding rates with NCEA qualifications, alongside myriad sporting, cultural, outdoor education, and leadership opportunities.

 

Our Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Awards and Peer Support programmes allow students to give back to the community through volunteer service.

 

The school environment is beautiful and safe, two traits valued by our International Students, along with the way our host families embrace them.

PB4L

Positive Behaviour for Learning creates a positive school environment that promotes student learning and social success by having:

✔ clearly understood expectations of behaviour

✔ positive reinforcement

✔ strong systems and practices for staff and students 

Blue Mountain College strives to help each student develop his or her academic and practical life skills to their best, across a broad curriculum. Our focus is on students as individuals, which shapes what is taught, and what counts as achievement.
