Kāpiti College is situated at Raumati Beach on the Kāpiti Coast in New Zealand, 40 minutes drive from central Wellington. It was called Raumati District High School when built in 1954, then renamed Kapiti College in 1957. The Kapiti College Motto is "Semper Fidelis".
Kāpiti College is a Decile 8 school, meaning the majority of its students are from above average socio-economic status. Its students come from a wide range of backgrounds and includes a Māori proportion of 17 percent.
The school offers a wide range of subjects typical of a New Zealand school of its size, and places particular emphasis on performing arts. Kapiti students compete regularly in events such as Shakespeare-in-Schools and Barbershop competitions and have regularly reached national finals. A high proportion of students study drama, dance, music or filmmaking.
Recent changes include the construction of a new Sport and Recreation Centre, which is the only seated stadium on the Kapiti Coast, and dance and film studios. It has a commercial kitchen which can be hired, as well as Kapiti Marae at the far end of the College, which is available for accommodation. A new subject - Philosophy - was introduced for all Year 9 students in 2010. This is seldom taught in New Zealand secondary schools.
