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.

Villa Maria College is a state integrated Catholic secondary school for girls in years 7 – 13.

The foundation for everything we do is our Catholic faith, which we express through our Mercy charism.

Villa Maria College aims to offer spiritual formation and pastoral care in the tradition of Catherine McAuley,
and the Sisters of Mercy who founded the College in 1918.

Centennial 2018

We celebrated our 100th birthday in style.  Watch our weekend in photos here.
