We provide challenging curriculum programs in all curriculum areas and have high expectations that students will strive always to achieve their personal best.  Choice of subjects is gradually introduced as students progress through the school and once they have experienced all subject possibilities


Students entering Maribyrnong College at Year 7 in 2020 have the opportunity to apply to participate in our Advanced Curriuclum Enrichment (ACE) program.

The ACE program caters for students who are able to demonstrate an outstanding capacity for academic achievement in a range of subject areas.

Students in the ACE program undertake challenging experiences in all core subjects and have the opportunity to progress more quickly through secondary school, thus maximising their potential to achieve outstanding VCE results.

Students wishing  to enter the ACE program will be required to sit an entrance examination. Selection is based on the ACER High Ability Selection Tests (HAST), as well as NAPLAN scores and Grade 5 reports.
