In our complex and ever-changing world, it’s clear that today's young people will be faced with a unique set of challenges in the future. To meet these challenges, fulfil their ambitions and contribute to the wider world, students must be equipped with capabilities that will enable them to thrive in a changing environment. 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.
Founded in 1923, Carey is a Christian independent coeducational school offering 3-year-old Early Learning to Year 12. Carey is situated close to the Central Business District of Melbourne, within easy distance of public transport.
As one of Australia’s leading schools, Carey maintains an even gender balance, fostering the development of confidence, communication skills and self-esteem in all students. Carey works in partnership with families to develop wise, independent, motivated young people who are inspired and equipped to create positive change. The Senior School offers both IB and VCE and fosters a dynamic and stimulating environment. Our students achieve university entrance scores that place Carey amongst the top schools in Victoria.
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, from the very beginning of each student’s schooling. 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.
Our IB educators are experts in their fields. With regular professional development and an active engagement with the IB Diploma Co-ordinator’s network, we ensure that our program is always at the forefront of IB approaches to teaching and learning. We have a number of examiners, principal examiners and workshop leaders within the School. Our educators are committed, passionate and inspiring leaders and mentors for our IB students.
