Carey is a positive and engaged community made up of students, staff, families, alumni, donors and friends.
Lifelong friendships are formed at Carey, and not only among the students and staff. Parents who participate in activities and support groups also make lasting friendships and there are a broad range of sporting and interest groups that not only provide important support to activities, but also provide enjoyment and social occasions for parents and students alike.Hear from our community

Carey maintains a close relationship with its alumni community. We engage with our 18,000 members through social events and regular reunions. Alumni also have the opportunity to connect through other initiatives such as business and career sessions, sports and performing arts clubs, giving back through social impact, mentoring and speaking opportunities.Visit the OCGA website
