For over a century, we have been inspired by and dedicated to our shared responsibility for shaping the citizens of tomorrow.
Animo et Fide, Carey’s motto, means ‘By Courage and Faith’. Inspired by our Baptist ethos and our focus on developing the whole student through a complete education, our motto is embraced and practised by all at Carey.
The symbolism of the torch exists throughout our school, including in our school crest. The torchbearer challenges students to take ownership of the legacy of Carey and pass the torch to the next generation of students, shining as brightly as it did when they received it.
