Mercy College is a Catholic school for girls which has a proud and rich history of educating young women in Years 7-12 providing knowledge and skills to equip them in their future life directions. We are a regional college established and supported by the local parishes of the surrounding suburbs. Established in 1965, the College continues to be linked to the Sisters of Mercy and is faithful to and attentive to their vision and mission in our rapidly changing world. The Mercy values of excellence, hospitality, justice and compassion are guiding principles that signal ‘who we are’ to each other and for each other.  We seek to be a College that educates the whole person.

Mercy College is committed to handing on the teachings of Christ, to witnessing Christ’s teaching and those of His Church and to living out those teachings. Within our walls, in our learning areas and corridors personal, spiritual and intellectual growth is fostered and diversity celebrated. In the Mercy spirit, love, joy, compassion and service underpin all we are and do.

With an emphasis on developing a socially just and environmentally aware approach to life, we provide a basis for each girl to contribute with purpose to our local, national and international world as a confident, articulate and self-aware young woman. We challenge our students to become independent and questioning learners and equip them with the skills necessary for lifelong learning. Inspired by Catherine McAuley and the Mercy tradition, we strive to do this within a faith-based, nurturing and educationally challenging environment.
