InZone is committed to supporting Māori and Pasifika rangatahi to achieve their full potential in terms of educational, leadership, personal, academic, cultural, community and transitional opportunities.  To ensure this life changing opportunity is available for all Māori and Pasifika rangatahi, we aim to keep our whānau Boarding Fee as affordable as possible.  To be able to do this, it is necessary for us to fundraise a significant portion of the actual cost which we could only do with the help of generous donations from individuals, charitable entities and our annual fundraiser.

The 2023 InZone Fees payable by whānau is $9,850 per annum. If you are eligible for the Ministry of Education Boarding Allowance, the whānau contribution is $3,050.

Scholarships and Financial Assistance

There are a number of third party bursaries or scholarships that may be available to your tamariki such as through the Māori Education Trust and various Trust Boards that provide limited financial assistance based on tribal qualifications (listed here).   If you would like your tamariki to attend InZone but you are concerned about the cost, then please call us to talk through options. 

School related costs

Please note:  there will also be costs associated with attending the school such as school fees, uniforms, camps and stationery and will be payable by you directly to the school.  Details can be found on the respective school websites.
