Located on a 26-acre campus, Mercy High School provides a rigorous Catholic, college preparatory education to bright and promising girls from more than 68 zip codes in Maryland and Pennsylvania.
Mercy knows how to prepare girls to lead and to excel in a dynamic global society. Our highly individualized approach to a college preparatory program challenges each Mercy Girl to become a young woman of intellect, faith, and service. As a school authorized by the International Baccalaureate to offer the Middle Years Programme, our curriculum in grades 9 and 10 features concept-based instruction and structured inquiry as a pedagogical tool. Mercy is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, which further cements our commitment to providing challenging and engaging courses.
Sponsored by the Religious Sisters of Mercy, Mercy High School continues a 150-year legacy of Mercy excellence in education in Baltimore. Rooted in the charism and tradition of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, we welcome girls from diverse backgrounds who, together, make Mercy an extraordinary learning community. If you are excited about providing an excellent educational experience for talented girls, and if you are passionate about the values of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy—hospitality, compassion for others, service, justice, and equality—we welcome you to join us!
