Carey College is a private Christian school in Panmure, Auckland, New Zealand.[2]

The school's motto is "In your light we see light", taken from [Psalm 36]]:9 and interpreted as referring to God as the one who makes all learning possible.[3] The school's mission statement is "Helping parents nurture children in excellence and truth for Christ".[3] Carey College is a registered Cambridge International Centre, preparing students for Cambridge International Examinations IGCSE and A Level qualifications[4] instead of the National Certificate of Educational Achievement ("NCEA") which it regards as unsatisfactory.[5] The current number of students (including international students) is about 40, from year 1 to year 13.[6]

This school's curriculum implements a Bible-based worldview.[7]
