Monte Sant Angelo Mercy College is an independent Catholic secondary day school for girls, Years 7-12. Founded in 1875 by the Sisters of Mercy under the aegis of Mother Ignatius McQuoin, the College continues a tradition of excellence and innovation in Catholic education in the Mercy tradition. Monte has a strong academic record; in 2007 it became the first Catholic girls school in New South Wales to offer both the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programs. Montes mission statement is expressed through the College motto: Religio Scientia Cultus – we are shaped and directed by what we believe, by what we know, by what we value. The Mercy values of respect for human dignity, compassion, justice, service to others, and commitment to the poor are central to school life. Students are actively involved in justice initiatives, e.g. St Vincent De Paul Night Patrol, Fair Trade Campaign, and Reconciliation. A diverse curriculum is supported by an extracurricular program including Music, Debating, Student Leadership, 16 sporting options, international tours and language-exchange opportunities. Students are supported by a sound pastoral care program. The learning environment is assisted by state-of-the-art digital learning resources and contemporary learning spaces.
