Presbyterian Ladies’ College, founded in 1875, is one of Australia’s oldest independent girls’ schools, consistently achieving the highest of academic standards, within a Christian environment that welcomes students of all faiths and abilities.

The 16 hectare park-like campus is located 12 kilometres east of Melbourne’s central business district. At Presbyterian Ladies' College the facilities include light, spacious classrooms, an Aquatic Centre, Music School, gymnasium, sports centre, lecture theatre, numerous ovals and playing fields as well as tennis, netball and basketball courts. PLC also uses its 75-hectare bush property for outdoor education, including environmental activities.

Each student at Presbyterian Ladies' College follows a broad range of subjects from K-Year 10, giving girls access to the full range of options in either the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) in her final two years. These courses offer over 30 different subjects, including six languages other than English (Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese and Latin), humanities, mathematics, sciences, information technology, business studies, music, art and drama. In 2003, PLC’s exam results again positioned PLC as one of Australia’s leading schools with 73% of all Year 12 students placed in the top 10% of the national cohort. Typically, 95% of all Presbyterian Ladies' College students proceed to university.

Within the academic curriculum, specific programs develop thinking skills, computer literacy, study skills, teamwork and independence. The Department of Individual Differences provides for extension and enrichment, English language support and study skills.

Extensive opportunities in language and cultural exchanges, music, drama, sport, outdoor education, leadership and service, contribute the balance in a rounded education and give every girl the opportunity to explore and develop her own talents and interests. Presbyterian Ladies' College’s progress towards developing cultural literacy grows from the strengths and needs of girls and their families who represent a diverse range of cultural backgrounds.

A spirit of friendliness, good humour and helpfulness characterises Presbyterian Ladies’ College.
