Senior School

Year 10 – Year 12

Ensuring students are fully equipped to tackle the range of possible futures ahead of them.

Senior School at Mackay Christian College is the journey through Year 10, 11 and 12. Here we focus on assisting students to make a successful transition from school into the world of work and further education.

Our goal is that all students will discover their individual pathway to a fulfilling and constructive future as they find their place in the world. Our focus is not only on encouraging students to achieve their best in the classroom but to challenge their character, bringing them to a maturity from which they can start down the pathway God has laid out for them.

A vast array of learning experiences is offered in the Senior School to match each student´s needs and interests. Through the many programs, subjects and activities offered, we seek to ensure our students are actively engaged in their learning and leave the College with highly developed communication skills and confidence in their own abilities, fully equipped to tackle the range of possible futures ahead of them.

In these critical years, we aim to foster and encourage independence and creativity in thinking, leadership development, community commitment and an excitement for learning.

A broad range of subject offerings means that all students can explore their passions and interests. Learning occurs in many places and it is for this reason we are committed to ongoing programs of Community Service, Work Experience, Education Outdoors and Leadership, including Peer Support.

These opportunities place great value on the development of collaborative partnerships whilst fostering individual capacity and commitment to excellence.

Our vision to work with parents and carers to support students to become, self-directed strategic producers, responsive communicators, creative, reflective investigators, empathic servant leaders and resilient problem solvers.
