All students at the college are encouraged to be an active member of the community, to serve, partake and lead. We encourage respect, responsibility and acceptance of others.

Our commitment to fostering leadership can be seen in the diverse opportunities the students are presented with. These include; Student Leaders, Student Council, Arts and Sports leadership roles, Academic mentors, Peer Support, Peer Sexuality Support, kapa haka, Environmental leadership, the Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme, project, team and group based leadership.

The opportunity for students to be involved in the school and community begins on their first day. The students are in an environment where they can participate at their level or be given challenges to extend their skills and experiences. Service and leadership are two of the attributes the college encourages all our students to take part in. Kaipara College is a proactive member of the South Kaipara and greater Auckland communities.
