Founded in 1923, Carey Baptist Grammar School is a Christian coeducational independent school offering tuition from Early Learning to Year 12.
Our Donvale campus caters for students from Early Learning to Year 6, after which students transfer to the Kew campus. School bus services are available to safely and efficiently transport students from the surrounding suburbs of Donvale to Kew.
As one of Australia’s leading schools, Carey maintains an even gender balance, fostering the development of confidence, communication skills and self-esteem in 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.
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.
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.
To support this student development, Carey’s Positive Learner Attributes are taught to all students, from Early Learning to Year 12. An important focus is placed on the three domains of individual learning; Thinking, Relationships, and Self-Management. Within these domains, students are supported in the development of key future skills through a range of learning opportunities which allow students to foster capabilities such as creativity, critical thinking and resilience and emotional intelligence.
Carey is a diverse and inclusive community with a strong commitment to social justice. Carey students are curious, aspirational and engaged global citizens. We build on their individual qualities to develop young people who flourish and can lead and serve with courage, compassion and intelligence.
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.
