==Overview and Structure==
Wesley College has three metropolitan day campuses: Prahran (renamed St Kilda Road campus from 2004), Glen Waverley, and Elsternwick. At each campus there is an early childhood learning centre which caters for children from ages three to four. There is also a residential learning campus at Clunes and a campus on Guildford Lane, Melbourne, where the city curriculum project is based for Year 9 students. The college owns and operates three outdoor education campuses (camp sites) in Victoria, near Paynesville, Healesville and Portland.
The school was the first registered school in Australia, and operates in a three mini-school structure (Junior, Middle & Senior Schools), which caters for students from kindergarten through to Year 12. In the Junior Schools (3 Year olds to Year 4), students from the Early Childhood Learning Centre to Year 4 are taught within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. In the Senior Schools (Years 10 to 12), Wesley offers the Victorian Certificate of Education, International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, Vocational Education and Training Programme and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning Programme.〔
Wesley enrolment is not subject to entrance examinations or other requirements〔 〕 although some preference is given to female students in order to achieve gender balance. A report in November 2007 cited Wesley's fees as among the highest of any school in Victoria.
