Lilydale Adventist Academy was founded in 1964 primarily as a boarding facility for families in rural Australia. For over forty years the Academy has catered for both rural and suburban families seeking quality Christian education in a peaceful and nurturing environment. Set on 43 acres overlooking Lilydale, the Academy has been developed into a serene, well appointed campus that must be seen to be appreciated.
As part of the Adventist School Australia system we will support and encourage the needs of your child, regardless of religious or cultural background, and we have an emphasis on caring for all aspects of their development and growth.
Lilydale Adventist Academy values and promotes the principles and practices of Australian democracy, including a commitment to elected government, the rule of law and equal rights for all before the law. We are also committed to and enjoy freedom of religion, speech and association. Within our school community the values of openness and tolerance are actively promoted and practiced.
Our school is located in the Yarra Ranges. It is an ideal setting for learning and, in conjunction with Edinburgh Early Learning Centre and Lilydale Adventist Academy, the location provides a well-resourced facility for students aged 3 right through to VCE.
Our school encourages families of all religions and cultural backgrounds to apply for enrolment. If you are considering the advantages of a Christian environment where the curriculum and procedures encourage the development of academic, social, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of your child, I invite you to make an appointment to visit us.

Conducted by the Sisters of Mercy since 1896, Mount Lilydale Mercy College is a Catholic coeducational College in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne in the Yarra Valley. The College caters for the needs of students in an environment of care, based on gospel values.
In 1846, the first Mercy foundation in Australia was established in Perth. In July 1891, with sisters from Carrick-on- Suir, Country Tipperary, a convent was established at Mansfield. From that foundation, a branch house was opened at Lilydale in 1896. Mount Lilydale became a coeducational school after serving as a school for young ladies since its foundation. In 2015, the College will celebrate 40 years of coeducation.
In recent years the College has undertaken a significant building and refurbishment program and a number of new buildings, including a multi-purpose Gymnasium capable of seating up to 2,000, Science, Technology (including food, textiles, wood/metal) and a Memorial Chapel. A specialist Year 7 Learning Area was completed in 2012 which is a dedicated creative space designed to cater to all aspects of transition to the College and secondary curriculum. Work has commenced on a new Master Plan to further enhance our facilities and to enable the College to continue quality education.
