Founded in 1875 by the Sisters of Mercy under the aegis of Mother Ignatius McQuoin, the College continues a tradition of excellence and innovation in Catholic education in the Mercy tradition.

Monte's mission statement is expressed through the College motto: Religio Scientia Cultus - we are shaped and directed by what we believe, by what we know, by what we value.

As a school community, Monte places a strong emphasis on collegiality and professional development. Monte staff embrace and celebrate the Mercy values of respect for human dignity, compassion, justice, service to others, and commitment to the poor.
