Years 7, 8 and 9 – Laying the Foundations
Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 at Mount Clear College undertake an engaging course of study that reflects the principles outlined in the Victorian Curriculum. The program is designed to facilitate the transition from primary school to secondary school and to encourage the development of independent and engaged learners.
The Junior School Program focuses on:

- Developing skills in literacy and numeracy that can be applied across the junior curriculum and in the later years of secondary schooling.
- Building students social and personal skills, with a focus on teamwork, resilience, reflection, communication and leadership.

Students undertake a course of study that involves English, Humanities, Mathematics, Science, Health & Physical Education, Languages (Japanese or Chinese), Visual Arts, Music, Drama and Technology (Food, Wood, Textiles and Metal). The aim of the Program is to provide students with a taste of what Mount Clear College has to offer so that they are equipped to make informed pathway choices.
