Principal's Image

MLC has long been one of Australia’s leading independent girls’ schools with an illustrious history and a long-standing tradition for innovation, unrivalled opportunity and academic excellence.

We pride ourselves on being an open-entry school with a diverse community – truly reflecting our global society as well as recognising the considerable range of interests and aptitudes that our students demonstrate.

The strength of any community is dependent upon the individuals. At MLC we are unashamed in our commitment to quality teaching, with our staff being passionate, supportive and experts in their fields. With a strong culture of ongoing professional research and development, our staff are also continuously learning alongside our students.

One of MLC’s most defining differences is being a large and well-resourced girls’ school.   Offering one of the broadest curricula of any independent school, subject variety is a hallmark of an MLC education – from trying new electives in Year 8 through to over 60 subjects across VCE, VCE VET and the IB. Our dynamic curriculum is designed to allow students to be inspired, challenge themselves and to think critically and creatively.

Learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom, and we strongly believe in a balanced and holistic education. Our students enthusiastically take part in our extensive cocurricular programs that have been designed to tap into every student’s interests, abilities and talents.

Students’ aspirations are supported by the exceptional facilities needed for their abilities to flourish; and our comprehensive wellbeing program, covering all aspects of the College, provides the environment for our students to thrive.

It is a huge privilege to be entrusted with the responsibility for educating young people, in a world which is changing at an unprecedented rate: technologically, economically and socially. I am extremely proud that at MLC we continue to embrace these challenges and am confident that these students will be well-equipped to be the next generation of thinkers, innovators and achievers.

Our over-arching goal is to nurture and develop each student so that she leaves us with the skills, knowledge and values to support her at school and beyond. We are preparing students to be able to do what they want to do and be what they want to be in today’s globalised era.

I look forward to welcoming you to MLC.
