While we can certainly learn from the lessons of our past, at MCC we are firmly focussed on the present and the future. Specifically, we are focussed on the futures of our students.

Students have great opportunities to explore and develop academically, physically and culturally through the excellent Academic, Trade Based, Sporting, and Creative Arts curricular and cocurricular programs offered.

The College’s Christian ethos, which undergirds everything we do at MCC, deliberately and strategically provides opportunities for students to grow emotionally and spiritually as well.

Mackay Christian College enrolled the first students in 1984. In May of each year the College community takes time to reflect on our past during the annual Founders’ Day Celebration.

The College was established to provide an independent, coeducational Christian education to families in the Mackay District. Our motto, Thy Will be Done, and our vision statement – Becoming All God Wants us to be, provide a strong foundation and guide the College’s planning processes.

The College has developed a comprehensive master plan for both campuses and future plans include the construction of an Information Centre (Library) for the Junior Campus, further development of sporting facilities (courts etc), and a multi-function building (Junior Campus).

Over the last few years we have been very busy with some extensive new developments including:

  • an award winning Trade Training Centre
  • a second campus which accommodates our Junior School
  • a beautiful Pre-Prep (Kindergarten) facility
  • a state of the art second multi-purpose auditorium
  • a purpose built Tuckshop facility
  • 2 large Flying Start classrooms
  • Outside School Hours Care Activity Centre
  • a fantastic Uniform Shop

The MCC team members are committed to a process of continuous improvement in order to ensure that decisions are data driven and focussed on the current and future needs of our students.

We remain guided by our vision, values and purpose which lead us to be completely committed to helping every student become ‘all God wants them to be.’
