Student care is a top priority at Methodist Ladies' College and the four schools structure means that every student is known, cared for and valued.

Care begins with a Home Group teacher, and extends to level co-ordinators, student counsellors, careers counsellors, chaplains, deafness integration aides, English Language Support (ESL) teachers, subject and co-curricular teachers. As an open entry school, MLC is proud of its commitment to student care, growth and development.

Over 50 different subjects are offered from science, maths, humanities, languages (French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Auslan) arts, music, drama and technology to VET subjects like hospitality, business, multi-media, information technology and community recreation.

Methodist Ladies' College also offers an enormous range of extra activities with clubs such as drama, chess, alpha omega and Ecocare, and outstanding opportunities for music tuition, bands, orchestras, choirs and performances.
