From the Principal
Mercedes College is located at the base of the Adelaide Foothills in South Australia, 6km south of the city centre.
We are an International Baccalaureate Reception to Year 12 co-educational Catholic school in the Mercy tradition with a wonderful record of academic excellence, and of providing opportunities that enable our young people to reach their full potential.
We offer a progressive, internationally focussed curriculum supported by family and community values. We aim to prepare future local and global community leaders in a caring and supportive environment.
