Enhanced Performance Program (EPP)

"Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardour and diligence."
- Abigail Adams

The Enhanced Performance Program has been designed to recognise individual strengths, encourage growth in personal learning and pursuit of excellence.

What is it and how does it differ from other schools’ programs?
The EPP is an approach designed to recognise the broad range of student talents across all aspects of school life. Unlike other programs, it allows all highly capable students to be challenged regardless of their area of strength.

Who can apply?
Any current year 6 student considering enrolment at Mount Eliza Secondary College.

Which areas does it apply to?
All areas where a student feels they excel: for example, English, Maths, Sport, Leadership, Art, Music, Personal Learning, Community work.

How does it work?
Students apply to be an EPP member providing evidence of their success.
Successful students can also be considered for a scholarship in their area of strength.


We want students to grow into their identities and become the best versions of themselves.

We display confidence, energy and fresh thinking, sharing our passion for our subjects.

We provide a stimulating school environment where students can learn, live, love and grow.

We have been parents of MESC for over 20 years. MESC isn’t our local school, but after touring many schools in the area over 20 years ago, there was no choice for us BUT MESC. We have seen many changes at the school over the past 20 years but the one constant is the standard of excellence MESC offers and expects in both education and wellbeing.
