When students enrol at Mercy Catholic College, the whole family is welcomed to the community as we work in partnership with parents and carers to provide a caring and nurturing environment which enhances student development.
Parents and carers offer strong leadership and support in many aspects of College life including:

It is the official body recognised by the Bishop and Catholic Schools Broken Bay (CSBB) to represent and support the participation of all parents & carers in our Catholic School communities and strengthen the important partnership between parents & school.

Facilities and community resources. Located in the heart of Chatswood, we have two campuses located on both sides of Archer Street, adjacent to Our Lady of Dolours Catholic Church. Our classrooms offer modern facilities and state of the art technology in classrooms which is also integrated into areas of the curriculum. Sporting facilities including Beauchamp Oval and the Fitness First Centre are accessible for the College’s use.
Parent convenors, coaches and managers for sport teams. Students are involved in a large variety of sports, representing the College in weekend competitions in such sports as netball, touch, basketball, soccer, cricket, hockey, tennis and swimming. Parents take on the roles of convenors, coaches and managers.
At Mercy Catholic College we maintain links to our heritage and our wider Mercy family
As a member of the Australasian Mercy Secondary Schools Association, we have strong links with all Mercy schools with the aim to further Mercy spiritually and ethos through sharing experience and resources and by providing national and international forums for Mercy educators.
As a member of Mercy 5, the College along with the four other remaining Mercy high schools in Sydney work closely together to continue the Mercy traditions with principals and student meetings.
Mercy Catholic College Alumni has been established to provide former students with an opportunity to stay in touch with friends, colleagues and staff.
At Mercy Catholic College we believe it is important that the entire Mercy family participate in College events and through the ongoing union of past and present, Mercy traditions and values will be maintained and fostered.
As a College graduate you are invited to join the MCA and become re-acquainted with old friends, re-establish links and maintain your connection with the College.
We also welcome you to share your knowledge or workplace experiences with current students, be a guest speaker at a College event or volunteer your time please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
