MELBOURNE SENIOR SECONDARY COLLEGE


Melbourne Senior Secondary College opened its full-time VCE (Years 11 and 12) day school in 2004 in the Melbourne CBD. The focus is on high VCE achievement leading to quality university entrance. The college offers good value as fees include free out-of-hours tutoring in four subjects for the academic year. After-hours tutoring involves two hours per week for each of the four subjects. Tutors are experienced VCE teachers and classes are conducted during the early evening and weekends. During the day, students spend more time in class (periods are one hour) and there are no distractions — no sport, religion, drama or music are offered. Tuition involves a mix of the best of school and university approaches to ready students for successful university learning. The college attracts highly motivated, quality students. Top Year 9 students may apply for the Year 11 program. Scholarships are available.

Facilities: Since 2004, MSSC has been situated in an air-conditioned, modernised building in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD, opposite the GPO. Facilities include computer centres with internet access and science laboratories, lecture rooms, activity rooms and entertainment rooms.

Curriculum: With the focus on high ATAR scores, the college offers subjects that will yield quality results. Two main streams — science and business — are offered.  Students are strongly encouraged to take two mathematics subjects with either stream. Subjects offered include English, English Language, ESL, Chemistry, Physics, Politics, IT, Business Management, Accounting, Economics, General Maths, Maths Methods and Specialist Maths. Chinese language is also available.

Extra-curricular activities: There are none. During the important VCE years, students are trained to avoid distractions and concentrate on study. However, students are also guided to incorporate scheduled study in a balanced lifestyle including physical activity, social activity, regular meals and sleep.

Student welfare program: Student progress and welfare are carefully monitored and counselling is given as required. Tertiary selection processes and career planning are integral to the college’s purpose.
