ACG Sunderland is a private school and is part of Academic Colleges Group. It is located in Henderson, a western suburb of Auckland.



The Sunderland Education Trust founded Sunderland in 2007 as "Sunderland School and College". It was the first private school in Waitakere City (west Auckland). In 2010, Academic Colleges Group (ACG) took over the management contract for Sunderland, changing the name to ACG Sunderland. The school occupies the building formerly used by the Waitakere City Council.
