Mercedes College is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Reception to Year 12 co-educational Catholic school in the one location.
Mercedes has a tradition of academic excellence and of educating young people to be the best person they can be intellectually, spiritually and socially.
We offer a progressive, internationally focussed curriculum supported by family and community values. Our aim is to prepare students as future local and global leaders by providing opportunities that enable students to reach their full potential.
Mercedes is one of only a few schools world-wide to offer an international curriculum for all students from Reception to Year 12 and the first to offer all three IB programmes in the Asia Pacific region.
The IB offers an educational challenge that provides scope for both academic achievement and worthwhile practical activities in community service. It is a cross-cultural approach that encourages students to gain an increasing knowledge of and respect for the cultures of the world.
Internationalism at Mercedes College
The concept of internationalism builds on the fundamental Christian philosophy embodied in the Aims of the College - to encourage respect, to give recognition and understanding to the rights of all people and the capacity to move beyond self-interest and to serve those who stand in need.
The International Baccalaureate enjoys a high level of recognition among the world’s higher education institutions. Success in the IB results in advanced standing, course credit, scholarships and other admissions related benefits at many universities.
