As a leader in education, our unmatched breadth of learning and wellbeing experiences and environments inspires and supports MLC students to find and nurture their individual interests and talents, forge their own paths and realise their full potential.
We offer a fully integrated educational experience that inspires students to be independent, resilient and ambitious learners so they feel confident to contribute to society, and embrace the challenges and opportunities in life.
The enrolment process is straightforward
We encourage you to enrol your daughter as soon as possible. Entry is not academically selective. The College accepts applications any time after birth. In line with MLC's Enrolment Policy, preference is given to early applications and those with a family connection to the College.
MLC has main intake entry points at Prep, Year 5 and Year 7 and a minor intake in Year 3. Places can occasionally become available at other year levels.
The MLC enrolment process begins when an application has been completed online, and the application fee has been received.
We recommend that you contact Admissions in the case of applications submitted less than three (3) years before the required entry year.
Main intake entry years process – Prep, Year 5 and Year 7:
Step 1 - Apply
To apply, please submit an online application via the Applications Portal. This form must be submitted with supporting documents, including a copy of your daughter's birth certificate.
Once we have received a completed application and payment of the application fee, your daughter will be placed on a waiting list. Please note we cannot place your daughter on the list without this step being completed in full.
Step 2 - Confirmation of intention to enrol
Approximately three (3) years before your nominated year of entry, the College will make contact to confirm your intention to enrol. At this stage, you will be asked to complete the Pre-Enrolment Student Statement, which collects additional information such as school reports, NAPLAN results and an official Immunisation History Statement.
Step 4 – Offer
A formal offer of enrolment may be made, and parents will be asked to confirm the place. Offers not accepted by the due date may be passed to other applicants.
Step 5 - Acceptance and Confirmation of enrolment
An offer can only be confirmed once the signed Enrolment Agreement and the non-refundable Enrolment Fee payment has been received. A $1,250 Enrolment Fee is charged for the first child and $1,000 for every other child in your family.
Step 5 – Interview
Students and their families will be invited into the College for a meeting with the relevant Head Of School. The purpose of this meeting is to understand your daughter's interests and talents and support her transition into MLC.
Every student entering Year 5 and above is also asked to sit a General Ability Test (GAT), which helps us ensure we can meet your daughter's individual learning needs.
Step 6 – Welcome and Orientation
MLC is a welcoming and friendly place. We ensure your daughter is familiar with the College and all new students will attend an Orientation Day before their first day. There are also parent information sessions.
Non-intake entry years process
For non-intake entry years, the application is the same; however, our Admissions team will be in touch one (1) year before commencement to start the enrolment process. In addition, an informal interview with the relevant Head of School will occur before a formal offer may be made.
Kindle Application Information
Kindle Applications close on 30 April for the year prior to commencement.
2022 and 2023 Kindle Applications are now closed.
Please Note: If you wish your daughter to attend beyond MLC Kindle, an additional application through the application portal is required for College admission. However, Kindle and College applications being made at the same time only incur one application fee. The Pelican House is not an intake year, - no applications will be accepted for this year level.
