An independent Catholic school with a difference
Saint Mary MacKillop College Albury is an independent school with a truly Catholic ethos.
The School motto is Verum, Pulchrum et Bonum (Truth, Beauty and Goodness)
Catholics believe that we live in a universe created by a loving God. Everything in the cosmos bears the stamp of the Creator – it is true, beautiful and good. Education is about encouraging our students to develop by seeking out truth, beauty and goodness. This will point them, ultimately, towards the God who created them.
The School was founded in 2009 and caters for years Kinder to Year 12.
