Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College has been educating and caring for young women for more than 146 years, continuing a tradition of excellence in Catholic education in the way of our founders, the Sisters of Mercy North Sydney.

As a school community we embrace and celebrate our core values of mercy, human dignity, justice, service and option for the poor. These values guide our teaching and learning culture and inform our student immersion programs and social-justice initiatives.

We believe girls’ education enables young women to flourish in every realm, encouraging them to be critical thinkers, problem-solvers and innovators of the futures they wish to independently create for themselves in their workplace and beyond.

Curriculum: As a leading independent girls’ school, we are renowned for our innovative approach to education, extensive curriculum choice and diverse co-curricular program. We follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme as the framework to deliver the NSW curriculum in Years 7 to 10. The Middle Years Programme prepares students to learn collaboratively and think independently – skills vital for success in senior years. In years 11 and 12, we offer a dual-based curriculum, the Higher School Certificate and IB Diploma Programme as pathways to academic excellence. We provide each young woman with genuine choice to tailor her academic program to meet her unique interests and strengths within a Mercy ethos. It is a testament to the professionalism of our teachers that their students achieve at the highest levels in both programs and across a diverse range of disciplines within those programs.

Leadership: We foster the uniqueness and leadership potential of every student and believe that every young woman, through knowledge, compassion and courage, has the ability to become a leading agent of change. We encourage our students not to be spectators of life, but to know when to stand up, stand out and stand beside others.

Wellbeing: We are committed to ensuring every student is supported, nurtured and valued. Our pastoral care and co-curricular programs ensure our girls have a balanced, holistic education that supports them to become lifelong learners, with the capacity and ingenuity to participate in all facets of life.

Mercy in Action: Service to others is at the heart of life at Monte. Students are encouraged to work for the common good, to be responsible stewards of our environment, to identify unjust social practises and to advocate for positive change.

Learning Spaces: Our world-class facilities place us at the forefront of academic excellence. Our contemporary learning spaces facilitate collaborative learning, transformational thinking, creativity and activity.
