Why Us
Our Community

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:

The Parents and Friends Association provides a forum for parents who wish to contribute to the development of relationships within and beyond the College, support the education of all students through fund-raising and most significantly, support the College in the implementation of the Mercy Catholic College Strategic Plan. The Parents and Friends Association meets once a term. Meetings provide a venue for parent contribution to decision making and input is always welcome.

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.

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 mercy@dbb.catholic.edu.au

Shaping the future by pursing excellence and creating boundless opportunities.
