Equipping Lifelong Learners to Thrive
"Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of any other, never merely as a means to an end, but always as an end in itself." – I. Kant
As students move into the Senior School, we strive to grow creative, critical and independent thinkers with the flexibility of thought best suited to the changing world that they will inhabit, and change for the better, as young adults. Thus, in addition to our energetic focus on academic attainment and very successful university placement, our education is equally attentive to the development of the whole person beyond the institutional worlds of school, university, and work. Active engagement in local service, global outreach, outdoor education, sport, and artistic performance is vital in this endeavor, so the Senior School focuses on giving students the life skills necessary to manage these competing commitments on their time. Our integration of the IB Approaches to Learning and 21st century skills ensure our students grow both as individuals and as responsible global citizens within an educational context that is highly relevant, flexible and enjoyable.
We encourage you to visit us at any time to experience for yourselves the wonderfully positive energy of the Senior School. Our new facility is open and inviting, showcasing our specialised programmes, collaborative environment and close-knit community. Please join us at one of our Open House events, call to schedule a personal tour, or join one of the weekly Senior School Principal’s late afternoon drop in sessions for an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Highlights of the Senior School Programme:
- A strong advisory programme that supports students' academic and social-emotional growth.
- A networked university counselling department that integrates to the curricula to ensure that students not only are admitted to universities that best suit them, but also that they leave Mulgrave with the skills and confidence to thrive once they get there.
- A palpable 'culture of study' supported by a state-of-the-art facility with open spaces, flexible classrooms and breakout study pods.
- A collaborative, positive atmosphere that encourages each student to reach their personal best while working with others and enjoying their learning.
- Provincially-ranked athletic teams in a wide-ranging variety of sports, an internationally-recognised arts programme and a divison-wide music curriculum anchor a well-rounded secondary education.
Our Senior school is a positive, collaborative and ambitious community, which strives to foster both intrinsic motivation and responsible citizenship. Excellence in life can only truly be achieved by building resilience, self-awareness, and the ambition, both personal and academic, to always strive for one’s personal best. Our students’ ability to welcome challenges as opportunities and to cultivate their kindness to others in the process, is a testament to Mulgrave’s ethos – we want to make a difference in the lives of our young adults and empower them to make a difference in the lives of others.
