With more than 30 sports and a wide range of orchestras, ensembles, choirs, committees and clubs on offer (including Theatre Sports, Coding Club, Green Team and plenty more), there is sure to be something to ignite girls’ passion.The MLC Story and GoalMLC was founded in 1882 as a ‘modern school of the first order’ with buildings that formed ‘a collegiate institution for girls unsurpassed in the colonies’. The goal of MLC’s founders, the Wesleyan Methodists, was to provide a ‘high-class Christian education for girls’, comparable with that provided elsewhere for boys at the time.
From its inception, MLC attracted boarders from all around the country; the iconic Gothic Revival building in the front gardens is now where our boarders live today.
Although MLC was Australia’s first girls’ school to be founded by the Weslyan Methodists, those of all faiths and cultural backgrounds have always been welcomed. This inclusive and accepting environment of the College, as well as being an internationally-minded school, is still strong today.
In the 21st century, MLC continues to set the benchmark for educational excellence, facilities and innovation.Visit MLC WebsiteWhere Excellence BeginsIDAT is here to help their students
