It is the aim of St Mary MacKillop College to help each individual student to develop his or her full academic and personal attributes. It is important for each student to experience success and be thoroughly prepared for future life.

The Year 7-10 Curriculum at St Mary MacKillop College is based on the Australia Essential Learning Standards (AUSVELS) determined by the Ministry of Education and the Catholic Education Office. This provides a broad based exposure and assists in the preparation for the more specialised and advanced subject content of studies at VCE level.

According to the AUSVELS, the curriculum is divided into eight Domains, these are English, Maths, Science, Technology, Health & Physical Education, Languages Other Than English (LOTE), Humanities, and The Arts. Students also engage in Religious Education Studies and Vocational Education.

Our goals are to help our students confidently develop their skills and abilities in an educational environment where they feel valued. Whilst maintaining a strong framework in the key areas of learning, we provide our students and parents with increasing choice and control over their learning.

We encourage our students to become independent thinkers and learners. For some students there are aspects of learning they find challenging. At St Mary MacKillop College we have a Learning Support team which works with classroom teachers in supporting these students with their learning needs. We also offer programs such as Quicksmart Maths, Making a Difference Literacy and The Listening Program that allow students with areas of need to develop their skills.

The College strives to constantly review, refine and expand the curriculum to meet the changing demands of society, technology, environment and national curriculum guidelines and profiles.
