Student Services

Carey is committed to taking good care of all students at the school, ensuring each student is comfortable at the school. New students will be introduced to classmates and teachers and will receive unconditional support from both parties. Each student will be a member of small groups. The function of the groups is to make the student feel comfortable or assist them when students require help. Each group will consist of specialized staffs; a certified psychiatrist and a mentor to closely monitor and guide the students in terms of academia or career options.

English Language Support

Students with no English foundation are required to attend intensive English classes first before enrolling into Carey. Students must take the AEAS examination at CETA to assess the student’s English skills and to effectively determine which Year the student should be enrolled into.
