Kavanagh College is recognised as one of Otago's leading achievers in co-educational secondary school education. Considerable emphasis is placed on personal development, spiritual growth through our special character, leadership and community awareness.
Kavanagh's four core values of Respect, Service, Truth and Justice are drawn from the charisms of the founding religious orders. They are the guiding principles that influence our relationships within the College and the delivery of the curriculum.
Our founding religious orders are the Dominican and Mercy Sisters and the Christian Brothers. These orders were based on the principles from the life and teachings of Jesus which form Catholic social teachings. These values permeate the life of the school in our relationships, teaching and activities, and are displayed through an emphasis on restorative justice and doing what is right for each member of our College.
