An Academy education is a uniquely Melbourne experience


The Academy of Mary Immaculate is a Catholic College in the Mercy Tradition united by our six Mercy values – Respect, Compassion, Justice, Service, Hospitality and Courage. These values underpin all our endeavours and are expressed in deed and word.

We are a strong and united community, a place where students are known and feel safe and connected.

We are a College of learning excellence and innovation and educate our students to be strong, resilient women. We believe that the education students receive here provides them with the skills, confidence and heart to shape the future, to make a difference.

We understand the intrinsic link between learning and wellbeing and ensure that our students are guided and supported in their learning, that they strive to excel and that challenges are met with grit, grace and determination. We educate the whole person.

As “the city school for girls” much of our teaching and learning is based in and around the City of Melbourne.

We were established in 1857 and the College has operated continuously on this one site since then. As the oldest girls’ Catholic College in Victoria we celebrate our 166th year.

We invite you to visit us and see the vibrant, dynamic College that is the Academy.

With every blessing,

Sr Mary Moloney, rsm
