Curriculum: Mill Park Secondary College has a tradition of students achieving academic excellence. Over 10 years, the college has consistently achieved very high standards of performance in the VCE. The college offers the DEECD-accredited Select Entry Accelerated Learning (SEAL) program for gifted and talented students as well as an Extension and Enrichment class for high achievers at each year level. Mill Park Secondary College is the only school in the City of Whittlesea and the Diamond Valley to be accredited in the SEAL program. The Senior Campus offers the widest choice of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) courses in the northern metropolitan area. In Years 7 to 10, students undertake a predominantly core curriculum covering all curriculum areas. The college also conducts a well-balanced pastoral program as part of the core curriculum. Years 9 and 10 include some elective choices, including VCE units as an option. The Later Years program offered at the Senior Campus includes VCE, VET and VCAL, English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Business Studies, Outdoor Education, Health and Physical Education, Hospitality, Technical Studies and Visual and Performing Arts. The college recognises the need to cater for individual differences in students and implements programs and activities at both ends of the spectrum: modified individual learning plans for some students and also integration aides assisting disabled students.
Extra-curricular activities: Activities such as debating, drama/theatre, dance, musical productions, membership of committees and participation in community activities are available. Students participate in major arts events each year including the Arts Festival, Song and Dance Celebration and Annual College Production. The Mill Park community looks forward to these annual events. Students study music and can also access instrumental music lessons, participate in choirs, ensembles and bands. An emphasis is placed on encouraging all students to participate in inter- and intra-school sport. A wide range of both summer and winter sports, including athletics and swimming, is offered.
Student welfare programs: Mill Park Secondary College prides itself on the strong support in improving student welfare within the dual campus college. The pastoral program is an integral part of the overall approach to student welfare and underlies the house system.
