Macquarie College is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist System of Schools. More broadly, it is part of an international network of Adventist institutions including education, health and aged care, which service Australia’s diverse communities, pursuing excellence in education, personal care and health services.
The College is a member of the Hunter Region Independent Schools (HRIS) association, within the broader New South Wales Association of Independent School (AIS), within which our students participate in academic and co-currciular programs and representative competitions.
The College is located on an eight hectare site on Lake Road, Wallsend. Nestled between the rapidly growing Lake Macquarie City Council and Newcastle City Council areas, the College services families from all points across the Hunter Valley including Cessnock, Maitland, Newcastle, Swansea and Cooranbong.
Macquarie College is supported by the Macquarie College Council, the Administration Committee and the Education Administration Group. Further, the College is supported strategically and financially through the Macquarie College Foundation and the Parent & Teacher Association.
Our mission is to provided a wholistic, Adventist Christian education in which students’ individual needs are at the centre of our decision-making, whether that is academic, spiritual, emotional or culturally based. Approximately 60 Preschool, 370 Junior School and 410 Senior School students enjoy the village-green styled Campus which maximises open, green spaces for group play and individual mindfulness.
