Enjoy Southern hospitality, a stunning natural environment, a temperate climate and a community rich with awesome opportunities! Established in 1927 we are a high achieving secondary school, with strong values in the Catholic tradition.
Our campus is set on 26 hectares with outstanding onsite facilities including an equestrian arena, swimming pool and expansive sports grounds. We have excellent modern classroom spaces and the online learning environment, along with specialist teachers and a dedicated International Department, helps international students to thrive in their study.
There are a number of outdoor programmes available at the College that make the most of the beautiful surroundings on our doorstep. From cycling the Central Otago through to tramping in the Aoraki-Mt Cook National Park, there are many opportunities for students to experience the outdoors and learn new skills.
St Kevin’s is a safe and welcoming College with 450 students who are like a big family. You will enjoy boarding with us and being a part of our College Family, and make genuine friends for life.
Oamaru is a safe, historical provincial town, situated on the North Otago coast, but with easy access to Dunedin and Christchurch international airports. Oamaru is the gateway to the stunningly beautiful Southern Alps, crystal blue rivers and Waitaki Lakes, and has both rugged coastlines and soft sandy beaches to explore. We also enjoy a unique Arts community, with festivals and activities throughout the year. With a population of about 14,000 people we get to experience a close community that is exciting and diverse.
