My daughter graduated from Mercy. Mercy not only prepared her for College, but for work beyond graduation. Wonderful education and environment. Helpful and caring faculty and staff. Well worth the investment!

I went to Mercy not knowing one person there. I was welcomed by everyone, and had made wonderful friends that I am still very close with, 40 years later! I would not be where I am today, professionally and personally if it wasn’t for Mercy! It was the best experience of my life!
I transferred to Mercy High School in Sophomore year and am now a rising senior. Coming from another private school, I can definitely say Mercy is a step up. The population and donations allow it to have more clubs, classes, and sports. It’s a friendly and welcoming environment and we have a lot of fun traditions. However it is not a super academically rigorous/intensive school. You can take many APs if you want but I would not say it is a gateway to an Ivy League type school.
