High School + Rugby
A fully immersive high school and rugby training experience.
Our High School + Rugby Academy programme is a joint venture between Mount Maunganui College and Inside Running Academy. Students attend Mount Maunganui College 4 days per week, attend Inside Running Academy 1 day per week as well as train with the Academy on 3 other occasions during the week. This programme enables high school aged rugby players to be fully immersed into high school life in New Zealand as well as developing their rugby with Inside Running Academy. It is the best of both worlds!!
