Beginning in 2012, Marcellin College sought to address the learning needs of high performing students in a more targeted manner by engaging in the research and development of the Newman Selective Gifted Education Program. The aim of the Newman Selective Gifted Education Program is to diversify, extend and enrich the curriculum in a way that is more specific to the needs and growth of gifted and talented students. As an accredited Newman Selective School, Marcellin College offers enrichment programs across all Key Learning Areas from Years 7 to 10. 
Sydney Catholic Schools (SCS) initiated the Newman Selective Gifted Education Program in 2011 as a response to ensuring educational equity was achieved for gifted learners in both Catholic Primary and Secondary schools.

Newman Selective schools provide high quality professional learning for staff and an authentically rigorous program for gifted learners within a nurturing Catholic environment, thus enhancing the whole-person. They offer a wide range of opportunities that cater for a variety of gifted learners and supports students’ social and emotional wellbeing.

The Marcellin Graduate

They arrive as young boys dependent very much on their parents and their teachers; they depart as adults in the eyes of the law. Young men - citizens of the world. There is an impression that the Marcellin boy is cocooned on the eastern side of Anzac Parade. The challenge for him is that he sees beyond that into the broader world. He is a global citizen. He is called to reach out to others, to let go of any preoccupation with self. His destiny is, as
St Marcellin Champagnat foretold, to be a good Christian and good citizen.
