    Wow are we blessed and grateful to have found this wonderful school for our daughter! She is THRIVING in this environment, doing well academically, involved in activities, and developing wonderful friendships. When your child tells you she finally "feels at home" and "where she belongs" in regards to her school, that's pretty powerful. We love how the young ladies here are really encouraged to develop to their individual full potential, are given many opportunities to participate in a wide variety of school activities, and all present themselves as articulate, confident, compassionate, and caring young women.

Preparing excellent for college .I am blessed and grateful to attend this wonderful school.Doing well academically, involved in activities and sport.Teachers are effective. Students care about the others. Competitive sports teams, great events and clubs. Fantastic college prep school.
    We are thrilled with our experience at Mount. We have a daughter who is a current junior and next year, our younger daughter will attend as a freshman. Our daughter has had the chance to grow and learn in an environment that is academically challenging, while warm and nurturing. We truly love that the Mercy Core Values are integrated into each day, developing young women to have strong character. The Mount's faculty and staff are TOP NOTCH. I feel like they all want the best for each girl. They are encouraging and supportive, while still pushing the girls to perform at their personal best level. The school offers so many amazing outlets for the girls in addition to academics: sports, clubs, theater, art, chorus, band, Euro/Fed challenge, Forensics, and much more. We are so happy to be a part of this phenomenal community!
