What we do: 
Auckland Secondary Schools' Centre (ASSC) is an Activity Centre based in Herne Bay, that provides alternative schooling for secondary students, whose behaviour and learning needs are not met in mainstream schools.

Attending the Centre provides a necessary 'time-out' for secondary school students to reflect on their behaviours, learn strategies they can practice in a small environment and make positive changes to their behaviours before returning to their referring school.  Students become dual-enrolled with ASSC and their referral school.

Success for students occurs when they are referred to us earlier rather than later, before their behaviours have become entrenched.

Mission Statement:

ASSC provides a safe, small, supportive learning environment where students needs are met and where they are challenged to develop the self-confidence and self-esteem to achieve their maximum potential in academic, social and cultural opportunities.
