THE CITY SCHOOL FOR GIRLS
The Academy of Mary Immaculate is committed to girls’ education, and has a strong belief in the future role young women will play in Australia and the world. This vision is sustained by a 160-year heritage of Mercy values, which we celebrate in 2017. These values shape our school’s daily life, resulting in a friendly and supportive learning environment.
From the beginning of the secondary journey, our structured Year 7 immersion program builds a sense of belonging and supports girls to grow their independence and take responsibility for their learning. Our education philosophy supports personal best achievements, and the Academy offers enrichment programs and clubs across the curriculum that extend student participation and learning. ‘Synergy’, the Year 9 cross-curricula program, focuses on ‘Melbourne as a global community’. Through inquiry-based learning, students develop the quality of their attention, awareness and focus. Such mindfulness will remain with them for life.
We are the city school for girls, and each student is benefits from Melbourne’s unique cultural and learning centres sitting alongside the College, including the Melbourne Museum, the NGV and ACMI. By conducting some classes in these institutions, we enrich our students’ social and cultural awareness and equip students for their future plans, whether that be for university, travel or work. Our campus also extends to sister schools in Italy and Japan, or study tours to France, opening up new horizons for students.
