At Carey, we pride ourselves on providing a curriculum tailored to the interests and abilities of each student.
We passionately believe co-education is fundamental to educating students for the future. Co-education is key to inclusivity, it enhances social and emotional development, and it allows us to broaden our educational approach beyond gender lines.
Carey is a positive and engaged community made up of our students, families, staff, alumni and friends whose connections extend far beyond the classroom. Together we are one – inspired by and dedicated to our shared responsibility for shaping the citizens of tomorrow.Learn more
We are committed to a complete education – an approach that values individuality and develops the whole person through a range of experiences and learning opportunities. We promote and embrace innovative thinking, creativity and collaboration.
Student wellbeing is more important than ever, which is why we have a fully-integrated and award-winning wellbeing program that underpins all learning at Carey. Students are pastorally cared for by mentors and weekly House sessions are used to focus time on student wellbeing, building meaningful relationships between students and their peers, and strengthening their connections with teachers.
We know that not all students are inspired by traditional academic pathways, but we motivate and encourage them to be the best they can be. We provide the pathways that allow students to thrive, including an inquiry-based approach in Junior School, over 50 elective subjects in Middle School, and IB and VCE in Senior School. As a result, Carey students achieve academic results that place them in the top students of the state.Class of 2021 VCE and IB Results
We believe that a future-focussed education must incorporate the development of the personal attributes young people will need to thrive in our rapidly changing world. Alongside measuring student growth based on their performance in the classroom and in assessments, we formally recognise their development of nine specific attributes that we believe make a successful Carey learner: curiosity, imagination, reflection, resilience, courage, knowledge, communication, collaboration and connectedness.
Throughout the learning journey at Carey, community service and social justice make up an important part of student growth. Through connections with refugee communities, Indigenous communities and a huge array of charitable organisations, our students learn to view the world through a diverse range of perspectives and understand their responsibility to give back to their local and global communities.Learn more about community service
