The College was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1887. The Sisters arrived in Australia from Ireland in 1846 and since that time have made a major contribution to Secondary Education in Australia. St. Aloysius College was one of the first Catholic Secondary Colleges for girls in Melbourne providing academic opportunity for many thousands of young women in the CBD area, the northern and western suburbs. The school has grown and developed greatly since 1887 and has always welcomed large numbers of migrant families and the ethnic population of the College has changed considerably over the years representing the changing migration flow. At present there are over 40 nationalities represented in the student population.
