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, Personal and Social Capabilities are taught in Pastoral classes. Pastoral is taught by the Home Group Teacher who assists with smooth transitions between primary to high school and from our Middle Years to Senior Campus. Pastoral classes assist with school success by providing a framework for monitoring difficulties and nurturing achievement and develop a sense of belonging. It also provides important opportunities for developing work education expectations and improving the transition to VCE studies or to work.
A wide range of co-curricular activities (e.g. debating, the school production, 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 at lunchtime.
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 students who are gifted, an Accelerated English Program, a STEM Science Acceleration Program, and opportunities for students to participate in Invigor8ing Education, the Victorian School for Student Leadership and Career Development Programs at Years 9 and 10.
