The Murdoch Program at Elisabeth Murdoch College is a challenging and innovative program aimed at students in Years 7-9 who endeavour to excel in their academic studies. EMC acknowledges that the learning needs of ‘gifted and talented’ students are often significantly different to those of their peers, and we strive to provide an innovative curriculum that encourages students to become independent, lifelong learners.
