New Horizon College was opened in 1988 in Napier, for students who enjoy living in a small city beside the beautiful Pacific Ocean. 
In 2015, New Horizon Auckland was opened, giving students the choice of studying in New Zealand’s biggest city. Students can choose to study in both schools and get a full New Zealand experience.

Our Philosophy

We believe that students:
• can all learn and achieve their goals
• learn better when motivated and having a good time
• learn to communicate through communication
• bring unique experiences and histories into the classroom
• are individuals with independent learning goals and strategies
Our teachers:
• provide support for all students
• use up-to-date technology to provide interesting lessons
• tailor lessons to be appropriate for students’ needs
• give feedback to students on their progress
• enjoy motivating and challenging students

Teaching Staff

Our teaching is based on modern communicative methods of learning English and our qualified and experienced teachers encourage all the students to be actively involved in the class activities.
