Mercedes College understands the importance of nurturing and inspiring students to become lifelong learners to meet the demands of the 21st century.

The co-educational Catholic school incorporates the globally renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) framework with the Australian curriculum to provide students with a world class education.

Set in a single location at the base of the Adelaide Foothills, and as one of few South Australian schools to offer the IB from Reception to Year 12, Mercedes presents a wealth of opportunities to nurture and challenge students, and enables continuity of learning at the same campus across their entire schooling.

"In such a rapidly evolving world, there is no way to be sure what today's young people will face in their future academic, employment and spiritual journeys, but we can provide them with the skills to meet the challenges and adapt to whatever lies ahead," said Principal Andrew Balkwill.

The College is proud of its history of academic excellence and is also committed to supporting students beyond the classroom. A range of pastoral care programmes are designed to help develop the whole person and enable students to flourish.

Mercedes College is a learning community in the Mercy tradition, committed to being people who are responsible, compassionate and loyal, show integrity and mutual respect, and have a strong sense of justice.

"It is one thing to declare good intentions and another to live them each day," said Principal Andrew Balkwill. "We invite you to visit our school and experience the sense of welcome and belonging that is a fundamental part of our culture."
