Carey Baptist Grammar School is a Christian independent co-educational school from Early Learning to Year 12. Carey works in partnership with families to develop wise, independent, motivated young people who are inspired and equipped to create positive change.


As one of Australia’s leading schools, Carey maintains a 50:50 gender balance, fostering the development of confidence, communication skills and self-esteem in both girls and boys. Students participate in community service; study different cultures, religions and beliefs; learn the importance of human rights; and are encouraged to respect and appreciate the world beyond their own experience.


Recruiting and developing highly professional teaching and support staff is of utmost importance to us. 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. Our international students are supported by a specialist co-ordinator, a parent group and student association.


In Years 11 and 12 our students may study either the IB (International Baccalaureate) or VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) to achieve university entrance. Each student is challenged to explore their academic strengths in order to achieve their highest potential as well as foster their individual interests and abilities.


Carey students are curious, ambitious 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.


Carey is located close to the centre of Melbourne and is well served by public transport.
