Why is St Mary MacKillop College Canberra's largest Catholic co-educational school?
Because of the great teaching:
A school can be no greater than its teachers, and MacKillop prides itself on employing the very best. With teachers committed to engaging, challenging, and encouraging each and every student to develop their love for learning, it's no wonder the students often say that MacKillop's strength is truly found in its talented staff.
The College's NAPLAN results show that students who enrol in Year 7 at MacKillop achieve remarkable progress by the time they are in Year 9 – the kind of progress that continues into their senior years. The "like school" NAPLAN data reflects brilliantly on the quality of our academic environment, as do our Year 12 results. In 2017, almost all students wishing to go to university gained entry. Even the student who achieved the College's lowest ATAR in 2017 was accepted into university. Students do well at MacKillop!
