It was a very great school, but there were definitely some cliques. It’s an all girls catholic school, so if you’re not into that sort of thing, it’s probably not for you! The academics were outstanding, especially the STEM program, as we were the very first all girls school to have it accredited in the whole United States! The athletics were also great, and most people were at least in one sport. The social life just wasn’t for me particularly.

I am a recent 2018 senior graduate. I went to Mercy for four years and absolutely loved it! Truly, it was the best fit for me. The campus and building overall are amazing. The teachers are some of the most dedicated and helpful teachers I have ever had in my adolescent schooling. I would recommend the school to any and everyone. They prepared me well for college with the real-life application curriculum and service projects.
I greatly enjoyed my time at Mercy Academy. My favorite part was how many choices for classes there are. I was able to take AP Art, Speech and Communication, and Creative Writing my senior year. The food isn't too bad but it makes up for it with different selections. If you don't like the main entree then you can pick the others offered (plus the cookies are to die for). The teachers are great! I loved all of them as they are great to get life advice from.
