Opened in 1959, it was originally known as Canberra Catholic Girls High School until 1983, when it changed its name to Merici College. Priority enrolment areas for Merici include Parishes within North Canberra, Queanbeyan, Belconnen and Gungahlin. The College is one of two all-girls secondary Catholic schools in Canberra; the other being St Clare’s College Griffith.
