Vision Mission and Values

To be a premier learning community recognised for developing young women of integrity and purpose who are empowered by the values of Mercy, creativity, and social justice in pursuit of academic and personal success.

We aspire to be valued as an authentic and inclusive community faithful to the teachings of Jesus, the mission of the Catholic Church, and the spiritual tradition of the Sisters of Mercy.

A Girls' Education

We see our students as young women who will make a difference in a world that desperately needs honest, strong, and compassionate leaders. This is why what we offer is a girls’ education not just about preparing students for the future, but also about giving them the skills, confidence, and heart to shape the future.
