Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College is an independent Catholic secondary school for girls, Years 7 to 12, located in North Sydney. As an integral part of Year 7 and continuing into the following years, the College has a strong emphasis on the development of advanced thinking, co-operative learning, research skills and metacognition for all students, regardless of their ability. These skills help students understand their own learning and assist in the development of independent study.
