Longburn Adventist College (LAC) is a Year 7 to 13 Christian high school that has provided Christian education in a caring family environment since 1908. LAC is a co-educational day and boarding school set in dairy country, five minutes south of Palmerston North and only a kilometre or two from the Longburn Fonterra plant.
The boarding establishment, which is called LAC House, is set on extensive park-like grounds and is surrounded by some neighbourly farmers. Students come from Palmerston North itself, around New Zealand from as far as Kerikeri to Invercargill, and around the South Pacific and Asia.
LAC has excellent academic results and retention rates, both of which are well above national averages. Coming to LAC is like finding another family.
