A MONTE EDUCATION
Values and Philosophy
To be COMPASSIONATE, to provide HOSPITALITY and to celebrate our TRADITIONS.
Option for the Poor
To be AWARE of the poor, to make a COMMITMENT to the poor and to EMPOWER the poor to get started.
Our College is blessed to be the beneficiary of a rich legacy of social justice and advocacy established by the Sisters of Mercy North Sydney.
It is the cornerstone of a Monte education to inspire our girls to act with courage and compassion towards discerning action for justice; to live their lives with humility and kindness, unequivocal about welcoming all people with respect.
Inspired by the charism of the Sisters of Mercy, the College educates young women in the Mercy Tradition. This means the College is guided by the values of Mercy, Justice, Service, Human Dignity and Option for the Poor, which are integrated into all curricular and co-curricular activities.
Our Mercy values permeate all aspects of College life and inspire our young women to realise their personal sense of self, spirituality and social responsibility. To some, this dynamic championing may appear revolutionary, but for a Monte student, it is a way of life.
