Mill Park Secondary College provides a common, comprehensive curriculum in Years 7 and 8 which builds on learning at the primary level and exposes students to a range of Arts and Technology subjects.

A Core and Elective program that provides all students with access to the widest possible range of learning areas, especially in their future studies towards VCE, is offered at Years 9 and 10.

The curriculum at Mill Park Secondary College from Years 7 – 10, is based on the Victorian Curriculum F-10. Years 11 + 12 students have access to a range of programs including the Victoria Certificate of Education (VCE), Vocational Education and Training (VET), the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) and University Extension Subjects.

Ethical, Intercultural, and Personal and Social Capabilities are taught through a range of subjects. In Years 7 to 9, twice weekly Engage sessions focus on personal character strengths and goals, as well as building positive relationships with peers and teachers. Explore sessions allow students to explore their place within Mill Park Secondary College, their local community, and the global community, with a focus on designing solutions to real-world problems.

In Years 10 to 12, students are supported to strengthen their capabilities as learners and citizens through weekly Connect sessions. In this time, they set personal and learning goals, develop stamina and resilience, and receive mentorship from their peers and teacher.

A wide range of co-curricular activities (including the school production, debating, sporting teams, state-wide competitions, instrumental music, and others) are available to provide learning opportunities during and outside of class time for students. Extra-curricular activities (sporting competitions, clubs, and games) are available for all students at lunchtime, while Year 7 students have a 60-minute Club built into their timetable once a fortnight.

The College aims to provide challenging learning opportunities for all students and has an Inclusive Curriculum Program for students with difficulties, a Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) Program for high-ability students, an Accelerated English Program, an Accelerated Science Program, and the Victorian High Ability Program (VHAP). In addition to these, students have the opportunity to apply for specialised programs such as the Victorian School for Student Leadership at Year 9 and the Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars program for Years 11 and 12.

The College also provides opportunities for selected students to increase their engagement with school through alternative programs. Through the Invogor8ing Education program, small groups of Year 8 students are able to engage in training and workplace immersion in partnership with the Whittlesea YMCA. At the middle years campus, a weekly Hands on Learning program allows disengaged students to participate in authentic hands-on experiences in a supportive setting.
