Our School

Mount Alexander College, situated in the inner west of Melbourne, is a co-educational high school from Years 7 to 12. It is a student-led, student-centred school structured with vertical classes.

Our Purpose

To provide a safe and supportive community of life-long learners where respect, sucess and diversity are valued and where students and staff are supported to realise their potential both within the school community and beyond.

Our Values

The values of Mount Alexander College are:

1. Striving for Excellence
The development of a passion to learn and high aspirations through the pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning. The celebration of personal achievement and success.

2. Belonging/Community
The provision of a safe inclusive learning environment in which all members of the school community feel a sense of belonging and are valued for their contributions to the school. A sense of community is encouraged through inclusive practices that reflect a respect for individual differences and a celebration of diversity.

3. Engagement
The implementation of a meaningful, relevant and apporpriately challenging curriculum and the provision of co-curricular programs that encourage participation, citizenships and student leadership.

4. Integrity
The promotion and modelling of consistently honest, transparent, responsible and ethical behaviour that upholds these core values and principles.

Our Curriculum

Mount Alexander College has a wide range of electives for students to choose from. They are able to select electives from Entry Level (Year 7) all the way through to Graduate (Years 11 and 12).

All students are guided in their subject choice through course counselling, allowing them to plan their learning pathway.

Diversity in learning is embraced at Mount Alexander College, and students are not forced into a VCE pathway if this isn't the right choice for them. For these students, other options including VCAL are offered to them.

The most important thing for every student is providing them with their best pathway to success.

Our Facilities

In 2016 the school embarked on significant facilities upgrades in order to make better use of the physical learning spaces to facilitate 21st century learning.

Mount Alexander College has moved to a student-centred school with a focus on authentic student empowerment. At MAC, students are known by a name and not by a number.

Students at MAC are not bound by the traditional year level classes. The school is broken into Entry (the traditional Year 7), Above Entry (traditionally Years 8-10) and Graduate (traditionally Years 11 and 12). This change creates flexibility in the student’s learning ensuring that all students are challenged at the level appropriate for their need and interest.

For example, students in Above Entry may undertake a Pre VCE or VCE subject, or an Entry Level student may undertake Above Entry, or Pre VCE classes.

Subject selection and learning plans are done individually with the students (along with parents) through course counselling and guidance to enhance successful outcomes for each student. The individual learning plans cater for each student’s passions, needs and interests.

With this vertical curriculum structure, students may select subjects above their chronological age level. The traditional year levels that can stifle potential have been removed.

There are many opportunities for students in this school. Students participate on teacher selection panels (after undergoing training), lead tours of the school, host assemblies, have a say in the appearance and running of the school and many other opportunities.

MAC students have an authentic voice. At MAC, rather than education being done to students it is done with students. These are the many ways in which we are taking learning to a whole new level.
