Marian Catholic College is a vibrant faith community engaging with Jesus and his message.
Living faith, is asked of us by Christ.
Having a heritage from the Sisters of Mercy and the Marist Brothers, proclaiming our faith draws upon the model of His Mother Mary, to be courageous, active and inclusive to ensure our motto, The Way, The Truth and The Life, is the best expression we can be as a person and as a community.
Student learning and academic growth has been strong within Marian Catholic College senior students.
Prominent analyst of NSW Catholic school HSC data, Dr John De Courcy has indicated that Marian Catholic College 2016 HSC results continued to show marked improvements.
Marian Catholic College students performed well with 75 per cent of all results falling into the top bands, four to six.
In fact, 41 per cent were bands five or six.
A remarkable achievement in itself but reflective of four years of deliberate focus on lifting student achievement through improvements in quality teaching and learning linked with student support and high expectations.

Marian Catholic College’s next focus is to apply similar rigorous analysis and application to improve the quality of literacy and numeracy teaching in the junior years.
This has already commenced with students attending after school writing sessions designed to improve the quality of extended student responses in essay writing.
The Catholic Schools Office Wagga Wagga are supporting this initiative by resourcing our school with extra funding, enabling Marian Catholic College to be confident in achieving its goal next year and beyond.
Preparing students for the challenges of a dynamic, interconnected world where knowledge comes from a wide range of sources, requires a far different learning model than what has been used at the college in the past.
Learners work collaboratively and lessons are not teacher centred and knowledge is generated not just delivered.
To enable learning to be flexible and collaborative, new learning spaces have been created through the purchasing of new furniture throughout many classrooms and open spaces, giving a fresh look to many rooms.
