Academic Excellence



The curriculum offered at Mary MacKillop College is a student-centred, inclusive curriculum based upon the Dimensions of Learning and Visible Learning philosophies which are designed to provide a learning environment and structure infused with academic excellence. Students undertake studies across all Key Learning Areas in a strategically organised manner that develops their performance of the skills embedded within the Common Curriculum Elements. The curriculum structure provides flexibility and so gives us a greater opportunity to match the curriculum offerings to the needs of each student. 

The curriculum aims to ensure that students undertake studies which are suitable in terms of their abilities, readiness and interests, while, at the same time, ensuring that they experience all Key Learning Areas. It fully involves students and their parents in planning programmes of study which suit the needs of the individual student. The curriculum structure provides flexibility and so gives us a greater opportunity to match the curriculum offerings to the needs of each student.

Academic excellence and good vocational outcomes characterise the framework of academic care that ensure each student is on task and has support in her aspirations.
