Students with learning differences

At Mercy, we provide support for success in our college preparatory program. Mercy High School’s Learning Difference Specialist, along with our Director of Guidance and Student Services, will work with you and your daughter to ensure that reasonable accommodations and or additional support that she may need will be provided.

At Mercy, we believe that students with learning differences thrive when they are supported both by caring professionals as well as challenged by the classes they take, therefore, students with learning differences benefit by taking the same college-preparatory curriculum as all other students. Our Learning Difference Specialist then provides the individualized support needed for your daughter to succeed academically and emotionally.

Please contact Ms. Magruder at or at 410-433-8880  to discuss your unique needs.
