MLC in Melbourne, Australia is a leading independent girls' school, internationally recognised for its extensive curriculum choice, cutting-edge approach to education, authentic learning experiences and outstanding academic results. As an open-entry, non-selective day and boarding school, we are a welcoming, diverse community offering a broad, holistic education that prepares world-ready women for their lives beyond school.

MLC has a proud 137 year history of educational innovation and academic excellence. With an interdisciplinary approach to learning with a strong focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design, and Mathematics), we are committed to developing the next generation of skilled, technologically capable and creative problem solvers.

MLC offers opportunity and choice with a broad choice of electives to explore in the younger year levels. Over 60 subjects are offered across VCE, VCE VET and IB (International Baccalaureate) pathways in Years 11 and 12. All of our subjects are offered on campus, with learning support and extension programs designed to help our students be their best. Within our diverse learning environment, there are multiple opportunities for students to form friendships across the College.

MLC's unique programs include our two external Outdoor Education campuses, MLC Banksia (Years 5-8) and MLC Marshmead (Year 9), and over 50 Australian and international tours each year.

MLC's state-of-the-art learning environment provides students with world-class opportunities for achievement, exploration and personal development. From the advanced science centre and renovated Library, state-of-the-art Physical Education Centre, commercial training restaurant and professional TV studio and video editing suites, MLC's facilities are exceptional. 2019 will see the opening of our new world-class Year 7-8 Learning Centre currently in development.

Our over-arching goal is to nurture and develop each MLC student so that she leaves school with the skills, knowledge and values necessary to be a world-ready woman.
