Our School

About

City Impact Church School is a Private Christian School located on Auckland’s North Shore. We welcome students from Year 1 to Year 13. Offering a high-quality education within a Christian environment, our students achieve academic excellence whilst growing in their faith.

Our belief is that we are all created in God’s image, with incredible potential, and we celebrate each of our students, knowing that they carry their own unique gifts and qualities. By providing the right atmosphere, opportunity and encouragement, our school enables them to fulfil their God-given potential.

Vision

City Impact Church School was founded by Senior Pastors, Peter and Bev Mortlock in 2004.  Situated on the North Shore, our school is a realisation of their dream to create a Christian school where students can freely worship God, whilst learning and achieving academic success. 

We offer a place where every student gains a Biblical perspective of the world, is able to grow in wisdom, knowledge and Godly character, all the while forming a foundation in Christ and in His Word.

Daily encounters with the Holy Spirit encapsulate the power of God and His presence in shaping our children’s future and destiny.  Strongly connected to City Impact Church, as a Christian School, we share the same beliefs, absolutes, values and standards.  We align ourself with the vision of the church and we are fully committed to the leadership and direction provided by our Senior Pastors.

Mission

To provide Christ-centred education where students grow in wisdom, knowledge and understanding, allowing them to be all that God has called them to be.
