About our school

Academy of Mary Immaculate is the oldest girls’ secondary college in Victoria. We educate young women of integrity and purpose with a contemporary outlook grounded in a strong sense of social justice. The Mercy values that shape our school’s daily life sustain our commitment to girls’ education, while our learning environment supports the important role young women will play in the future of Australia and the world. 

Beginning with our Year 7 immersion program, each student grows independence and takes responsibility for her learning. The program includes Orientation Day, House sports, Big Sister/Little Sister program and the Year 7 Camp. 

From our location beside the Carlton Gardens, we conduct classes in Melbourne’s premiere learning and cultural centres – including the NGV, Melbourne Museum, ACMI, and nearby world-class universities. Our Year 9 cross-curricular program ‘Synergy’ requires students to apply knowledge across all subject areas as they investigate an immersive learning project and produce robust research papers, which they present to the school community. 

We match curriculum with extension and support programs and co-curricular subjects to help students pursue personal goals tailored to university, TAFE, apprenticeships, traineeships, and employment.
