The college’s CLEAR values of Christlikeness, Learning, Excellence, Attitude and Respect are embedded in everything that we do at MCC. These values form the core of what we are working to see develop and grow in ourselves. Consistent and clear values guide the MCC behaviour education of student’s decision making and lifestyle choices to develop the character and resilience you need to be able to fulfill your God given call in life.
These values should be seen in the standard of your conduct and also in your commitment to learning and assessment tasks. When a prospective student signs the Statement of Support by Students in the Enrolment Contract they are saying; as a student of Mackay Christian College, I agree to abide by the following Code of Conduct and all the other rules expected of each enrolled student.
The Mackay Christian College community comprises students, parents, and staff working together to develop each child's potential in diverse learning situations. We focus on fostering positive, critical thinking skills and nurturing respectful attitudes.
We firmly believe that education is a continuous process that begins from Kindergarten to Year 12 and beyond. Our commitment to the education of the whole person, including personal, social, cognitive, and spiritual development, is unwavering.
We firmly believe that every College community member deserves a safe, secure, welcoming, and loving environment that allows for developing their potential.
At Mackay Christian College, we strive to offer a high-quality learning environment that encourages students to develop an ongoing personal revelation of Christ.
We acknowledge the importance of the example and witness of our staff, a curriculum framework based on Biblical Christian thinking, and the standing of our College within our community.
Our mission at Mackay Christian College is to uphold high academic standards while fostering good professional relationships, discipline, and effective communication between the school and families.
This is our Future
Although we can learn from our past, our primary focus is on our students' futures. We offer excellent academic, trade-based, sporting, and creative arts programs that allow students to explore and develop in various ways.
The College's Christian ethos is at the heart of everything we do and provides opportunities for students to grow emotionally and spiritually. In 1984, we enrolled our first students, and each year, we celebrate our past during the annual Founders' Day Celebration.
Mackay Christian College was established to provide 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.
We have a comprehensive master plan for both our campuses, including further development of sporting facilities and a multi-function building for our Junior Campus.
Over the last few years, we have completed several significant new developments, including:
an award-winning Trade Training Centre
a second campus for our Junior School
a beautiful Early Learning (Kindergarten) facility
a state-of-the-art second multi-purpose Auditorium
a purpose-built Tuckshop facility
an Outside School Hours Care Activity Centre
and a Uniform Shop
Our team members at MCC are committed to continuous improvement, and we make data-driven decisions focused on our students' current and future needs.
We remain guided by our vision, values, and purpose, which makes us wholly committed to helping every student become 'all God wants them to be'.
