About our school

Shaping our Future 

Mount Alvernia College is inspired through the lives of Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi, and the founder of the Missionary Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, Elizabeth Hayes. Each patron offers students, staff and our wider community the unshaken ability to act as agents of change, global thinkers and to emulate a “we not me” approach to life. 

Our Year level-based pastoral guardian system ensures that each student is not only known by name, but valued, respected and future-ready as she embarks into adulthood – a vivacious woman of Mount Alvernia. As a College, we pride ourselves in fostering the growth of highly developed, emotionally resilient, women of distinction. Simply, we exist to empower students to be hope-filled with a desire for learning and life – equipped to transform the world. 

Principal's Message

Instilled with the Franciscan charism of our foundress Elizabeth Hayes, Mount Alvernia College is a thriving learning community with over 940 students. Every student is known by name, valued, respected and are boldly seeking their aspirations with purpose and meaning. We pride ourselves on producing graduates that are globally aware and empowered to use their voice and talents to respond to the needs of the time. With a workforce consisting of capable, agile and innovative staff we are a school of choice for both teachers and students. Guided by Gospel values of Courage, Joy, Respect and Service, we empower our students to be hope-filled and resilient, with agency for learning and life, to transform our world. With the life of Elizabeth Hayes epitomising the value of courage, this is our chosen focus value of 2022. As a community, we believe that courage is the embodiment of a spirited learner and leader. It is the virtue that helps us to face challenge and that calls out injustice. With visionary and sustainable master-planning behind us, we look confidently ahead at our future.
