Wesley College

577 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne, Victoria, 3004 Australia

This college preparatory school occupies three campuses. The St. Kilda Road campus, situated three miles from the center of Melbourne, serves students in grades K-12. Its urban setting is accessible to the city's galleries, courts and art center. The program at Glen Waverley campus, located about 10 miles from the center of the city, offers a more suburban setting and also accepts boys and girls in grades K-12. The Elsternwick campus, where pupils in grades K-9 may enroll, lies about seven miles from the city center. On all three campuses, the school conducts a broad-based program. Children age 3 through grade 4 enroll in Wesley's junior school, where they learn in a homeroom setting. Students in the middle school (grades 5-9) develop learning skills while also becoming increasingly independent. The senior school program (grades 10-12) allows interested pupils to pursue the IB Diploma, as well as the Victorian Certificate of Education and Vocational Education and Training. In addition, Wesley maintains three outdoor education sites: Chum Creek is situated in the Australian bush and helps to develop pupils' hiking, camping and wilderness skills; Camp Mallana provides canoeing and sailing opportunities near the Gippsland Lakes; and a seaside farm at Portland, in the state's far west, enables boys and girls to study coastal and rural life patterns. Students in grade 9 also spend eight weeks enrolled in a residential program in Clunes, a small town in central Victoria.
