Our philosophy and goals are expressed through the school’s motto Religio Scientia Cultus – we are shaped and directed by what we believe, by what we know, by what we value.
At Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College, students are:
- Provided with a quality education rich in diversity of opportunity
- Encouraged to realise their potential within a strong, nurturing community based on mercy values
- Challenged both academically and spiritually, and motivated to make a positive contribution to their world
The crest STAR OF OCEAN symbolises the importance of a true guide in our quest for the good, the true and the beautiful, and reminds us of Jesus, the way, and of Mary, Mother of Mercy, our pre-eminent guide on the journey across life’s vast ocean.
Named after Monte Sant’ Angelo in Gargano, Italy, a time-honoured centre of religion, learning and culture, the school rightly adopted a motto which declared simply and directly its values based philosophy and broad curriculum:
RELIGIO SCIENTIA CULTUS
Our lives, it says, are shaped and directed by what we believe, by what we know and by what we value.
