Villa Maria College is a Roman Catholic School in which the whole school community, through

the general school programme and in its religious instruction and observations, exercises the

right to live and teach the values of Jesus Christ. These values are as expressed in the scriptures

and in the practices, worship and doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, as determined by

the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Diocese.

The Mercy charism is an integral part of Villa Maria College. It pervades all aspects of

College life. The College aims to offer Catholic spiritual formation and pastoral care in the

tradition of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy.

At the heart of the College are the attributes of Mercy:

Education that is grounded in the Gospel

Respect for the dignity, worth and potential

of every human being

Concern for the poor and disadvantaged

Concern for justice

The Religious Studies programme, which is compulsory for

all students, is founded on belief in the Gospel of Jesus

Christ, the intrinsic worth of the living Catholic tradition,

the sacredness, uniqueness and developing nature of

the human person and the value of a community

of staff, students and parents,

searching together to integrate

culture with faith, and faith with

everyday living.

Our Mission

Empowering each young woman to determine her

potential, live Gospel values, confidently embrace

life-long learning and as a Mercy woman be

inspired to make a difference.
