Nau mai, haere mai

At Christ’s College, we get boys. We are New Zealand’s only independent school for boys from Years 9 to 13. We understand what makes boys tick. We enjoy their energy, humour, ideas, and zest for life. We celebrate boys and we teach in ways they learn best. We are committed to our mission – 'Each boy at his best' – as all aspire to reach their full potential.
