Macleod College is situated in the well-established suburb of Macleod, just 14 km north of the city of Melbourne. The college is situated 900m from the Greensborough Highway and 3.5km from Plenty Road and although it is conveniently close to these major thoroughfares, the college has the charm of a neighbourhood school as it is tucked away in the heart of the suburb.
