Mercedes College where tradition meets tomorrow

Mercedes College is co-educational school for Reception to Year 12 students, based on one Campus in Springfield. Founded in 1954, the College has grown and thrived over the past 70 years, to become a leading International Baccalaureate (IB) world school.

Situated on 6.5 hectares of lush, green gardens, the Campus sits at the base of the Adelaide foothills, overlooking sweeping views of the city and the stunning South Australian coastline.

The College has a reputation for a strong sense of community and lived values, which encourages students to flourish in all aspects of their learning experience. Mercedes College promotes the education of the whole person, emphasising intellectual, personal, emotional, and social growth through all domains of knowledge.

This focus on delivering an engaging educational experience, has inspired artists, explorers, scientists, actors and musicians for more than seven decades

Now, Mercedes College is inspiring a new generation to think creatively, be curious and open-minded, explore the world around them and become life-long learners.

We have high expectations for our students, and we offer high support to help them reach their goals –whatever they may be.

This year, the College will open their new high-performance Arts and Sports Precinct, which will provide state-of-the-art spaces for learning, training, playing, performing, and coming together as a community.

With a design inspired by the College’s beautiful surroundings and the grounds’ botanical nature, this highly anticipated facility will connect the school’s heritage with the future through contemporary style and functionality.

A student’s journey at Mercedes College, will be marked with milestones of personal achievement and academic development, building character, resilience and leadership skills, for life.
