Ko Kahurānaki, Ko Kauhehei, ko Pukenui ngā pae maunga, Ko Roto-ā-Tara te waiū . Ko Kahungunu te iwi, Ko Takitimu te waka, Ko Te Whatuiāpiti te tangata, Ko Te Aute te whare wananga, Tihei Mauri Ora!

The special character of Te Aute College is determined by:

Our rangatiratanga as a people. As Māori our language and tikanga are vital – they underpin our whole essence as a marae-based learning institution. Our culture permeates Te Aute’s very existence as a college.

Our affiliation with the Anglican Church of Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia. Within a warm and complementary relationship we are able to promote and practise our Christian faith.

Our 24-hour learning environment. Students are prepared socially, culturally and physically for the world outside school.
