Overview

Macquarie College is open to families of all faiths and religious persuasions who have regard for Adventist Christian faith and wish for their child to fully participate in all aspects of the College program. Our fees are competitively structured and provide the average family greater access to private education. Arrangements can be made for a tour of the College and its facilities, to more fully appreciate the educational and growth opportunities offered at the College.  

As limited places are available, parents are advised to submit an Enrolment Application as early as possible to avoid disappointment.  Students may then undertake testing, prior to an appointment with the Head of School to discuss all aspects of College life and final placement.  

Macquarie College Referral Program

Our current families contribute to the fabric of the Macquarie College experience, and also play an active role in the introduction of new families to our School and Church communities. Discussions between your family and friends about your experience at Macquarie College assist with making informed introductions and positive enquiries about commencing a journey with Macquarie College.  Referrals by members of our current community are valuable and we acknowledge everyone’s contribution to making Macquarie College an inclusive and dynamic education environment. Click Here for more information about the Macquarie College Referral Program.
