Wesley College is a leading coeducational, open-entry school that offers a true education to its students in all their diversity. Established in 1866, Wesley’s broad-based curriculum and extensive cocurricular programs are informed by principles of inclusiveness, justice, environmental sustainability and faith in action.

One of the top VCE and IB World Schools, our comprehensive program promotes excellent academic results and values equally the importance of sport, visual and performing arts, outdoor education and community service.

We encourage our students to aspire to achieve excellence and personal best in all areas and they graduate with much more than an ATAR score. Our progressive values foster and promote empathy, inclusivity, diversity, and a strong sense of community in every student and staff member.

Our graduates are supported and connected by an extended network of over 22,000 former Collegians who live and work in more than 53 countries. This diverse and active network spans a broad spectrum of professions and industries, and is one of the largest of its kind.

Investing in the future of Wesley College

The passion and commitment of our donors and community has helped shape Wesley into the leading, coeducational IB World School it is today. By giving to Wesley College, you are contributing to and sharing in the future successes of our students, strengthening the educational experience we offer today and ensuring new generations can rely on these same and even greater opportunities.

Your gift, large or small, to the Wesley College Foundation will make an impact on the lives of current and future students. By investing in their potential today you can ensure Wesley’s graduates give back to their local community, the nation and the world tomorrow.

The Wesley College Foundation has two key fundraising priorities.

  • Increase access and enrich diversity. Inclusiveness and diversity are at the heart of Wesley’s values and our extensive scholarship program provides opportunities for students to experience Wesley’s transformative education.
  • Provide exceptional learning environments. The quality of Wesley’s academic programs, co-curricular activities and outstanding facilities is due in large part to the generosity of our donor community.

From the Principal, Nick Evans (OW1985)

‘In 2019, I returned to my alma mater as Wesley’s 17th Principal. It is both a thrill and an honour to serve this wonderful community, one that remains true to its progressive values and unwavering commitment to developing the whole child. I believe wholeheartedly that education has the power to transform lives, hearts and minds. My hope for our students is that they experience the distinction and depth of this great school in the same way that I did.’
