Welcome Our community spirit and focus on the individual needs of each child prepares our students to flourish as they take their place in the world.

In response to our rapidly changing world, we aim to equip students to be life-long learners and global citizens by fostering internationalism and participation in international education.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) and the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) programmes offered, promote the education of the whole person, emphasising intellectual, personal, emotional, spiritual, and social growth through all domains of knowledge.

At Mercedes College, we develop student's skills and confidence to flourish in their academic, co-curricular and personal pursuits.

Wellbeing is not a programme at Mercedes College. It is much more important to us, and forms the basis of everything that we do.

The wellbeing of our students is deeply intertwined with our curriculum, facilities, approach to teaching and the connection between students and their teachers. We focus on prompting personal growth and development, enabling each student to gain the confidence to take responsibility for their own learning.

Our commitment to delivering a Reception to Year 12 IB education ensures that rigorous standards are regularly auidited and quality assured.

Accreditation authorises us to offer the IB programmes, and provides you with the confidence that our systems and practices are of an exceptionally high standard.

You can be confident that your child is receiving a world-class education and pastoral care at Mercedes Colege

Visit us to experience our emphasis on student wellbeing in our daily activities, driven by the mutual respect that underpins the relationships between students and teachers.
