Mentone Girls’ Secondary College offers an Enhancement Program for girls who seek a greater academic challenge.

Registration for year 7 2022 has closed. Application support documents required by Friday 14 May.

The Enhancement Program runs from Years 7 to 9 and has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn through higher-order thinking, inquiry and rich tasks as part of an enhanced curriculum in English, Mathematics, Humanities and Science. Enhancement Program students work on more complex tasks and learn topics to a greater depth and breadth.

Enhancement Program students also take part in the Instrumental Music and Band Program. They are able to nominate preferences from a range of instruments. No prior musical studies are required. Please note that Instrumental Music lessons cost $500 per year, and instruments can be rented for $200 per year if required.

Application process

The application process has four steps:

1. Edutest registration and testing

2. Application for Year 7, 2022 at Mentone Girls’ Secondary College

3. Submission of forms and grade 5 semester 2 report

4. Interview

Edutest registration has closed.

Parents must register at MGSC Enhancement Edutest registration for the formal test, provided by Edutest. Applications close on Monday 10 May. The testing will be onsite on Saturday 15 May from 8.45am to 12noon. Late applications cannot be processed.
