Mercedes College is one of only a few schools world-wide to offer an international curriculum for all students from Reception to Year 12 and the first to offer all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes in the Asia-Pacific region.
The concept of internationalism builds on the fundamental Christian philosophy embodied in the aims of the College - to encourage respect, to give recognition and understanding to the rights of all people and the capacity to move beyond self-interest and to serve those who stand in need.
