Kapiti 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.

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.

A new subject - Philosophy - was introduced for all Year 9 students in 2010. This is seldom taught in New Zealandsecondary schools.
