MLC girls become world-ready women

As a Senior School student, life at MLC is rich, varied and exciting. Students enter a world of possibilities where no dream is too big or too difficult to accomplish and every student aspires to her personal best. As a proudly open-entry, non-selective school, we celebrate diversity in our school community where students from all walks of life learn and achieve together. One of the first Australian schools to be certified by the Council for International Schools, our global outlook and commitment to internationalism has fostered a culture of respect, support, and harmony.

MLC offers one of the largest and most varied curricula in Australia, giving your daughter a world of opportunity to discover new interests and develop new skills, unhampered by gender stereotypes. With more than 30 sports and a diverse range of groups and clubs to join, there is sure to be something to ignite your daughter’s passion. While we offer big-college opportunities, our smaller school structure and our renowned, integrated wellbeing programs ensure we provide personalised care so that every student feels supported.

Three learning pathways are available when students enter Years 11 and 12: VCE, VCE VET and the IB. Students receive extensive support when making their learning decisions, with information sessions and knowledgeable support from teaching coordinators and career counsellors. With its internationally minded curriculum and breadth across learning areas, the IB is a popular choice amongst our students and complements our college ethos of creating well-rounded, critical thinkers who challenge the status quo. In line with the IB’s balanced education, many of our Senior School students choose to take on one of the college’s many leadership opportunities and all enthusiastically embrace the CAS (Creativity, Action and Service) component of the diploma.

MLC students have a long tradition of performing strongly in the IB, with top-performing students achieving a perfect score every year over the past nine years. In 2016, an outstanding 70 per cent of our IB students attained an ATAR of 95 and above. Our students have consistently earned tertiary scholarships and have gone onto study at top-ranked universities, both in Melbourne and internationally.
