Enthused by the teaching of Jesus Christ and inspired by the vision of Catherine McAuley, Mercy Education aims to foster justice, compassion, hope and hospitality in the Mercy tradition. We commit ourselves to the provision of a supportive environment where we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a central and fundamental responsibility of our schools.
Our commitment is drawn from and inherent in the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the gospel.
Mercy Education is responsible for the governance and operation of twelve Mercy Sponsored Colleges owned by the Institute. Mercy Education is the Employer of the Principal and staff of twelve Mercy Colleges.
Over time, the former Melbourne Congregation had established or administered several other secondary schools for which they no longer had any responsibility. Some of these have closed and others have primary classes only.
