Melba College is a co-educational government secondary school located in Croydon, an eastern suburb of Melbourne. We operate a Years 7 to 12 Campus on Brentnall Road, with student enrolments drawn from across Maroondah. The first 3 $17.9 million state-of-the- art learning facilities were opened at the start of Term 3 2018 and the next two (S.T.E.A.M centre and Basketball Stadium) are now complete and in use by our students.
Melba College, named after inspirational Australian Opera Soprano, Dame Nellie Melba, was established in 2013 as a result of the merger between Maroondah Secondary College and Croydon Secondary College. This provided the opportunity to develop a vision, culture and strategic direction that would best prepare our students for 21st century global living and learning.
Our professional teaching and support staff deliver a comprehensive, engaging and enriching curriculum that prepares our students to graduate world-ready. Melba students benefit from the school’s commitment to fostering success in all its forms, providing a positive, nurturing culture, a broad co-curricular program and strong community focus.
Our learning community size and sub-school structure, our dedicated staff, personalised learning and wellbeing focus further contribute to each child’s positive schooling experience. This empowers our students to succeed and lead fulfilling lives now and in the future.
