Middle School (Year 9-10) is pivotal time in a student's life where they can personalise their learning. Through MLC's renowned subject breadth, we encourage each student to stretch and challenge themselves. It’s a chance for students to explore new pathways and start the process of identifying what their strengths and interests are.

A central part of Year 9 is experiencing MLC Marshmead or Melbourne Term, and in Year 10 students are able to start studying VCE subjects, where relevant and appropriate.
