This family of four was part of the Carey College community until they moved to Cambodia to work with Hagar International, caring for children and disadvantaged families through-out Asia. Prior to that David ran his own manufacturing business in Auckland.
"We chose Carey College because it is family based and has a strong Christian focus. The small roll is a huge benefit as it has a more personal touch. The teachers are passionate about bringing out the best in our children, nurturing and developing the unique skills and gifts of every child. Carey College has been an excellent choice for both our son and daughter and we know that these vital first few school years have helped form a strong foundation for their lives."
Lyndon was a foundation secondary pupil of Carey College, twice winning awards at the National Science Fair. He has a DPhil in computer science from York University, a B Com and a BSc from the University of Auckland, and a BA (Theology) from the University of Oxford. He has been a Vice President of Barclays Capital investment bank in London, and is presently Pastor (Morning Congregation) of the Auckland Baptist Tabernacle church.
"Studying at Carey College is something I look back on with thankfulness. It is a place where academic study is given a high priority, but where knowing God is given the highest priority. While the school is small, if my experience is any guide then your child will be able to progress in academic or business life. But if that is all you are looking for in a school, you haven’t seen the most important thing about Carey. Your child’s spiritual needs are their greatest needs, far more important than academic achievement and business success. That's where Carey College shines."
Emilie undertook all her primary and secondary schooling at Carey College before studying Bio-Medical Science at Auckland University. She then enlisted in the New Zealand Army where she completed Officer training and is currently undergoing further training with the Army Medical Corp.

"My education at Carey College has been a springboard to allow me to do what I am doing now and face the challenges as they come along. Right from year one in everything we did we were taught to use initiative and think things through for ourselves. Being in such a small school meant that we had to learn how to get on with other age groups and people. Classes got smaller the further I went, and we had to interact with teachers at a more adult level. The education I received at Carey College has benefited me academically and socially since I left school, but my parents chose Carey for my brothers and me because they believed we could not be fully equipped for life if they tried to separate faith and education. I agree. "
An internationally recognized leader for over 25 years, Carey College is a small school by design. As a small school we have the flexibility, small classes, and course options that enable us to grow each child's knowledge, values, faith and skills. Children are known to staff who pray for them daily. Parents know staff, enjoying a partnership that crafts the best possible schooling for each child.
A community small enough to be personal,
a school big enough for excellence
A Safe, Happy Community
Our small size helps make it a safe school where every child is known and every child gets personal guidance. Here is a caring community that is inclusive of very child, encouraging children to grow lasting friendships across the age-boundaries without undue peer pressure.
Adapting Learning to Personal Needs
Small classes ensure teachers have time to teach individual children, extending strengths, helping with weaknesses. Because it is small the school quickly adapts to children's needs instead of trying to force children to fit the school's needs.
Achieving Excellence, Leaving No Child Behind
Our size maximises opportunity for each child's gifts to be extended to the highest international standards. Children with partiuclar needs or gaps in prior learning are never overlooked: the school is small enough to give personal help ensuring children keep pace with their peers.
Enriching Learning with Choices in a Multi-faceted Curriculum
Small means flexibility and choice, with a full range of subjects, practical experience and creative opportunities matched to each child. Carey College students have all the courses offered by bigger schools without the constraints of “streaming”, big classes, and rigid timetables.
