Mount Clear College, one of Ballarat's oldest schools (founded in 1874) where generations of students and staff have enjoyed the benefits of our extensive curriculum, outstanding facilities and caring community. Students from all ages thrive in an environment that encourages independence and resourcefulness combined with tolerance, and respect and understanding for differences.

At Mount Clear every staff member takes part in the pastoral care of students and shares in the belief that happy and committed students learn. As a school with international sister schools we encourage a global perspective in our thinking for all our community.

Our learning choices for students are broad at all year levels. Outstanding academic programs exist at all levels and we offer alternative pathways for students at all year levels. Our VCE results are amongst the highest among like schools. We are the only local school offering a gifted program endorsed by the Department of Education for students with high abilities. Entry to this program is via an examination and interview.

Mount Clear College is about much more than simply the programs we offer. What makes Mount Clear distinctive is our people, our culture of respect, our understanding of diversity, our focus on active learning and thinking as part of our curriculum, and our trust and commitment to positive student outcomes. In this environment learning becomes both exciting and stimulating where each student is able to reach for their personal best.
