Melbourne Girls' College is a vibrant and eclectic College that is committed to ensuring the very best outcomes for all. The College, since its inception in 1994, has quickly developed a reputation for excellence that means that the student population has increased four fold over this period. Its popularity also means that as well as serving the needs of the students in the local area, students also travel from all over Melbourne to access the College. International students are also welcomed at the College.

 As student numbers have increased the facilities have also developed. In recent years the College has opened a new science wing, library, arts and drama facilities and a large gymnasium. A Learning Centre for Year 7 students is being built during term 3 2006, and will offer students the opportunity to learn using the latest technology.

The original mission of Melbourne Girls' College was to provide educational opportunities of world class standard, to ensure that the leadership capacities of all girls are developed, and to provide a focus on Science and Technology. The standard of excellence achieved by students attests to these goals being achieved.
