Year 10 Program

In Year 10 at Carey, we build on the experiences and learning from Middle School to prepare independent, motivated and engaged students who are ready to take on the VCE or IB in their final years of school.

The learning program is structured to empower students to choose their own pathways while expanding on the core units they began in Middle School. Students can choose to pursue a huge range of subjects throughout the year, helping them to find their strengths and interests and guide their decisions for Years 11 and 12.
