    I graduated from Mercy a few years ago and the way it prepared me academically and socially for college and beyond is incomparable. College academics seemed like a walk in the park compared to Mercy's Honors program. The relationship I formed with the teachers empowered me to work hard in the classroom and ask for help when I needed it. I also found my interests and strengths at Mercy that informed my path moving forward. What is most fascinating about my classmates is that the students who couldn't wait to graduate are the ones who support the school the most and constantly say they wish they could go back. Whether or not you realize the power of the school while you're there, the things you learn and the experience you gain follow you throughout your life. The test scores may be lower than other schools, but this place is truly Magic.

    I transferred to Mercy mid-year of Junior year and everyone made sure to welcome me with open arms to help me transition smoothly! I truly felt like I was apart of the Mercy community right away and made amazing long lasting friendships and memories in my short time here. I'm glad I made the change to here because the AP and honors classes and college resources helped me prepare for college and get into my dream school.
    Phenomenal experience as a student. The girls I graduated with are my sisters, and we still keep in close contact with all members of our class. Mercy prepared me better than I could ever have imagined for college. In fact, I am far more prepared than most of my peers in my classes, and professors have noticed that my high school provided me with an extremely strong academic foundation. I will be forever grateful for all of the support I received as a Mercy student and continue to receive as an alum.
