At MacGregor these focus areas are underpinned by high standards, aspiration and opportunity to enable all our students to become ‘The Best We Can Be’. Exceptionally gifted students also enjoy accelerated learning through our 'Honours' Signature Programs.
As a senior school student you can also benefit from our close associations with leading universities by taking part in high school programs with Griffith University, The University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology. Over the years, it has been shown that students with a strong academic performance, high levels of motivation and good organisational skills can do very well with early university studies.
