Celebrating diversity through PRIDE

Research shows that LGBTI students with supportive educators and friends who understand their sexuality or gender identity feel safer at school, skip fewer classes, and earn higher grades than students without such support and acknowledgment. At Carey we embrace difference and celebrate our diversity, helping our community to become stronger and, ultimately, more resilient.

Valuing Values

We value values. A Carey education means more than just a score on a piece of paper at the end of Year 12, enjoyment of some of the best facilities in Australia, exposure to committed and highly competent staff or access to a professional network long after leaving the school gates at the end of Year 12.
