The mission of Maria College is to instill in our graduates a respect for the dignity of each person and the ability to transform learned skills into caring service. The ideal of “service to others” is rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition and the ideals of the Sisters of Mercy, who founded and sponsor the College. The intent of the College is to provide educational programs with high academic standards, convenient scheduling and formats for students of any age who may benefit from small classes and a warm, encouraging environment.
At Maria College the focus is on developing each individual – providing them with the opportunities for growth that will enable them to make meaningful contributions to society. As a Sisters of Mercy college, there are six values integrated into our culture – values that have become part of the student experience at Maria College.
