At Carey Baptist Grammar School, we believe in adopting a broader expression of success and allowing students to leverage their strengths and follow their passions, whether they be academics, creators, innovators or athletes.

The wellbeing of every student is at the heart of everything we do at Carey and our award-winning wellbeing program underpins all our activities. Through nurturing student wellbeing and supporting their individual interests, we foster an environment that supports them in achieving their best while also developing individuals with integrity, resilience and a social conscience.

We strongly believe that co-education is a vital part of helping our students to develop who they are from an early age and are proud that our school maintains an even gender balance. By encouraging children to work effectively and respectfully with a diverse group of people, we enable them to embrace differences and to learn to understand and empathise with others.

Recruiting and developing highly professional teaching and support staff is one of our greatest priorities. Carey is known for being innovative, progressive and leading the way in best practice teaching and learning, supporting strong academic results and personal development for each student. Carey’s philosophy of student-centred learning requires students to be active, responsible participants in their own learning, with the teacher working as a mentor, facilitator and guide. The Senior School offers both IB and VCE and fosters a dynamic and stimulating environment.

Carey students are curious, aspirational and engaged global citizens. We build on their individual qualities to develop young women and men who flourish and can lead and serve with courage, compassion and intelligence. We warmly invite you to join one of our regular tours or Open Mornings to learn more about what makes a Carey education different.

Carey provides a curriculum to challenge and stimulate each student, offering IB and VCE in Senior School; more than 50 elective subjects in Middle School; and a collaborative, inquiry-based approach at Junior School. Carey’s philosophy of student-centred learning requires students to be active, responsible participants in their own learning, with the teacher working as a mentor, facilitator and guide.
