Owned and administered by Mercy Education Limited, the mission of the school is inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, in particular by the spirit of mercy which Jesus lived and taught and upon which the Sisters of Mercy were founded. The core values that underpin Our Lady of Mercy College are justice, compassion, courage and joy. Girls are encouraged to have big dreams about making the world a better place. They are supported and challenged to be responsible, ethical citizens, to believe in their dreams and to achieve their full potential.

Facilities: Performing Arts Centre, lecture theatre, library, science, media and ICT resources, gymnasium and multipurpose all-weather sportsground.

Curriculum: Learning and teaching at OLMC promotes independence, inter-dependence and self motivation. Through the AUS VELS, students are provided with discipline-based educational experiences that are challenging, purposeful and comprehensive. Across all year levels three languages are offered: Japanese, French and Italian. In addition, a special Year 9 program called “Horizon” recognises the diverse learning opportunities in the local area and helps students explore the big issues of justice, community and environment from a truly local perspective. In Years 11 and 12, the college offers three distinct pathways for students: VCE, VET and VCAL. Students have access to a wide range of VET Certificates, including a new VET Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance at the Mercy Hospital for Women in Heidelberg. The college consistently achieves good academic results. In 2014, 11.5 per cent of students received a study score over 40 and 17 per cent of students received over 90 for their ATAR score.
