Information for Seton Keough Families

In the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy and their founder, Catherine McAuley, we stand ready to offer Seton Keough students and their families a warm Mercy welcome as they consider the next step in their educational journey for the 2017-18 academic year. To that end, we have established a Mercy Welcome Team with a mission to walk with students and families in this significant transition. Our Mercy Welcome Team includes Mercy’s president, principal, dean of students, director of enrollment management, director of guidance and student services, assistant director of admissions, registrar, director of finance and operations, director of athletics, director of college counseling, and faculty members who can offer Seton Keough students and families important information about the admissions process and financial aid, special visiting days, transportation, transcript evaluation, academic programs, learning differences services, athletics, and our heartfelt and welcoming Mercy spirit.

Learning Differences


At Mercy, we are committed to ensuring that every student who desires our college-preparatory education will succeed. Mercy High School’s Learning Difference Specialist, Ms. Cynthia Magruder, along with our Director of Guidance and Student Support, Ms. Kate Gerwin, MA, L.G.P.C., will work with you and your daughter to ensure that any accommodations or additional help 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.
