History

The college was formed in 2005-2006 when the three public schools in Wodonga; Wodonga High School, Wodonga West Secondary College, and Mitchell Secondary College merged and pooled resources, as part of a plan to address long-term population growth in Wodonga.[1] The plan saw the restructure of the public schools in Wodonga, with the formation of Wodonga Middle Years College to specialise in the education of students in Years 7, 8 and 9, and Wodonga Senior Secondary College to specialise in the education of Years 10, 11 and 12. The two colleges are loosely associated.

Programs

Wodonga Middle Years College has two main programs that cater for students in years 7, 8 and 9. All students in year 7 take part in the Authentic Learning program, designed to ease the transition from primary to high school. Students in years 8 and 9 undertake the Individual Learning Programs, where they choose their own subjects within certain guidelines.
