Founded in 1956, Mount Alvernia College is a warm engaging community where students are encouraged to follow their pursuits in academic, sporting, outreach, and cultural activities, all whilst fostering their spiritual faith.

As a Franciscan College, Mount Alvernia endeavours to follow, in word and action, the example of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi, in living the values of courage, joy, respect and service.

At Mount Alvernia College we offer a contemporary and forward-thinking pedagogical practice approach. We harness the unique capabilities of each student, guiding them into adulthood as a leader in their community. Our curriculum whilst challenging, offers students a vast range of academic and vocational pathways – it’s not a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

We pride ourselves in fostering the growth of highly developed, emotionally resilient women of courage and distinction. With a core focus on producing audacious, aspiring and authentic young people, students are well-equipped critical thinkers, emulating a ‘we not me’ approach to life. We simply exist to empower young women to be hope-filled with a desire for learning and life – equipped to transform the world.

Operated by Mercy Partners and governed by an Incorporated Board (Mount Alvernia College Limited), we have close to 70 years of Franciscan heritage behind us with exciting plans for our future and for the members of our community.

In true Franciscan hospitality, we welcome all families to Mount Alvernia College, to see what life is like at one of Brisbane’s leading private girls’ school.
