Marist College

Marist College is a Year 7 - 13 Catholic Secondary School for girls. Our College is situated in Mt Albert, approximately 10 minutes drive from central Auckland, New Zealand. Our Motto, Ad Jesum per Mariam, To Jesus through Mary provides the focus for each individual to develop their potential to the full.

Marist College offers a holistic education complementing your work as parents. We strive to attain high standards in our academic, cultural and sporting endeavours, all with an added dimension - the spiritual one. We encourage personal excellence and a love of learning, catering for the individual within a very caring Catholic environment.

Students come from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and the College promotes inclusion and celebrates diversity. Our students leave Marist College strong, confident, resilient young women, well prepared to face our ever changing world.


History of the College


The Marist tradition of education originated in France in the early 19th century with Jean-Claude Colin and Marcellin Champagnat. Jeanne Marie Chavoin was the foundress of the Marist Sisters.

The College was opened on the present site in 1928 by the Marist Sisters. They ran and staffed the College with Sister Juliana Massey serving as the last religious Principal from 1960 - 1990. The Sisters continued as the Proprietors of the College until 2001, when they gifted the school to the Roman Catholic Bishop of Auckland. Bishop Patrick Dunn is the current Proprietor of the College but the College is proud of its heritage and retains its strong links with the Marist Sisters. Although there are no religious Sisters currently on the staff, the values and traditions of the Marist Sisters continue to be of importance in the daily life of the school.

The College has undergone many changes during its 80 years of existence. When it originally opened it was a school with attached boarding facilities. An extensive building programme over the past few years means that very little of the original building remains. A new gymnasium and classroom block was opened in late 2012.The College is well resourced, and has attractive and well-maintained facilities.

International Students

Marist College has well established links with a number of overseas schools. International students come from a number of countries and the college enjoys its multi-cultural mix. Marist College has catered for international students for more than fifteen years with considerable success.
