At Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College we believe in preparing young women for a life of significance, purpose and success. Monte has been educating and caring for young women for over 145 years and continues a tradition of excellence in Catholic education in the way of our founders, the Sisters of Mercy North Sydney.
Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College is grounded in the Mercy Spirit. This spirit is welcoming and hospitable, modelling fairness, justice and compassion, especially to those in need.
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 that every young woman, through knowledge, compassion and courage has the ability to become leading agents 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.
As a leading independent girl's school we are renowned for our innovative approach to education, extensive curriculum choice and our diverse co-curricular program. We encourage the pursuit of academic excellence through a rigorous educational program that allows our students to achieve at the highest level.
We follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme as the framework to deliver the NSW curriculum in Years 7-10. The Middle Years Programme prepares students to learn collaboratively and think independently, skills vital for success in senior years.
In Years 11-12 we offer a dual based curriculum, the Higher School Certificate and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
We foster the uniqueness and leadership potential of every student, empowering them to take their place in the world. Through transformational leadership programs we are committed to changing the workplace paradigm for young women.
Education for leadership and personal challenge is an integral part of the Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College experience. Such opportunities include: SRC, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Drama, Debating, Mock Trial. As well, Monte offers extensive Performing Arts and Sporting disciplines.
Service to others is at the heart of College life. Students are encouraged to work for the common good, to be responsible stewards of our environment, to identify unjust social practices and to advocate for positive change.
We are committed to ensuring that every student is supported, nurtured and valued. Our pastoral care and co-curricular programs ensure our girls have a balanced, holistic education that promotes self growth.
Our world class facilities place us at the forefront of academic excellence. Our contemporary learning spaces facilitate collaborative learning, transformational thinking, creativity and activity.
