Excel High Achievers
Mullauna College is a leading school in providing specialised learning environments for high achieving students. Excel students demonstrate academic ability in advance of their age group in literacy and / or numeracy and show high potential in thinking skills, such as logic and reasoning. They are motivated, curious, active learners who demonstrate perseverance and a determination to excel in their studies. While these qualities are fundamental to independent learning, Excel students also enjoy working collaboratively with their peers on complex and challenging tasks and exemplify our College motto of ‘Success through learning together’.
In Year 10, all Excel students undertake an advanced VCE pathway. This includes a VCE Unit 1 and 2 in Year 10 and a VCE Unit 3 and 4 in Year 11.
Due to changes in DET guidelines, all government schools are forbidden from running testing for Yr. 7 High Achievers classes. Selection for this class will rely on the academic and transition data provided by the students’ primary school. Once students have been identified & confirmed as suitable candidates by primary school teachers, families will receive an offer to join the Excel class via email. Some places may be available for students to move across from mainstream to the Excel class for semester 2. Please contact the college for more information.
