Scholarships Offered

Through the generosity of our Old Girls and the broader school community, MLC School is able to offer a small number of means-tested scholarships to indigenous girls, entering either the Junior School or Year 7. These provide partial or full funding for the length of enrolment to cover tuition fees and some costs associated with attending the School.

All applicants for the Indigenous Scholarship program should submit a general enrolment application by 30 January in the year prior to the proposed entry for their daughter.

Applicants for Year 7 are asked to apply for and sit the scholarship exam in February prior to their proposed entry year.

All applicants will be considered and those short-listed will be interviewed during the course of the year prior to entry. Student enthusiasm and family support for the opportunity to attend MLC School are relevant factors in determining suitable recipients.

Our hope is to be able to offer more opportunities to assist girls through this scholarship program as we grow the level of philanthropic support available.

For further information, please contact Registrar, Nerida Coman.

About MLC School

MLC School’s mission is to educate and inspire young women to be fearless thinkers, with moral courage and compassion to be agents of change in their own lives and the lives of others.

MLC School is an independent, nonselective Uniting Church school for girls from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 in Sydney’s inner-west region.

Led by a highly professional staff under the guidance of principal Ms Lisa Moloney, girls are challenged and encouraged to question traditional perceptions and roles of women and are instilled with the skills and confidence to take their place in an everchanging society.

The MLC School girl is empowered with skills and capabilities that enable her to be adaptive, compassionate and courageous. She embraces new challenges and opportunities; and strives for excellence. She is cared for and well supported so that she can confidently focus on her own individual, personal and academic growth. A wide selection of subject choices, as well as an extensive co-curricular program, aims to empower girls to be self-reliant and play an active role in their futures.

Girls in their final years have the choice of the HSC or International Baccalaureate Diploma as their pathway of study. MLC School has been offering the IB Diploma for around 20 years and is regarded as an international exemplar in delivering the program.

Not only throughout their education but for the rest of their lives, MLC School girls dare to be more, to walk as daughters of the light.
