Enrolling at Melton Secondary College
Over the past few years, the college enrolment has grown very quickly and is now at 950 students. Given the size of the school the Department of Education and Training (DET) has instructed the school to use a designated neighbourhood boundary.
At this stage, the designated neighbourhood boundary includes residences north of Brooklyn Road and most of Melton West up to Navan Park. It does not include Kurunjang or Melton South.
Before submitting an Enrolment Application form please check with the school to make sure that your residence is within the designated area. Students may also be accepted if they have a sibling at the same address who are attending the school at the same time, or where the student is applying on specific curriculum grounds (e.g. specific VCE subjects or the ACE program).
Parents or guardians are invited to contact Jenny Buckle our Assistant Principal in regards to applying for enrolment into the College.
All enrolment applications are preceded by an Enrolment Interview. Parents/guardians should provide the following documents to the interview:

Melton Secondary College offers a range of scholarships in the following areas:
All scholarships will continue for two consecutive years: Years 7 & 8. These scholarships will have a financial value of $500 per year. This covers the cost of school fees (normally $250 per year) with $250 towards the cost of school books and other school expenses.
Any grade 6 student intending to attend Melton Secondary College is eligible to apply, however scholarships are not transferable to other schools. Applications will only be considered if submitted on the Scholarship Application Form by the stated due date. Applications will be considered by the Assistant Principal, Mr Matthew Naudi and relevant subject coordinators.
In addition to the financial package associated with each scholarship, the scholarship holder will also participate in a program including training and mentorship to develop their leadership capabilities so that they can make a significant contribution to Melton Secondary College.
Scholarship holders will be reviewed each year by the appointment panel to ensure the ongoing suitability of the recipient. It is expected the scholarship holders will contribute significantly to the College in the area of their scholarship and maintain high standards of behaviour and College citizenship.
This is an exciting program through which Melton Secondary College can foster outstanding individual achievement and a culture of excellence and leadership in our College.
