Welcome to Mercy!

Choosing a high school can be a difficult and exciting decision for a student and her family. At Mercy, we're here to help! Our admissions team is ready to answer your questions and guide you through the admissions process. 

If you want a school that will challenge you academically, nurture you spiritually, deepen your appreciation of the arts (whether participating or observing), give you a thorough background in mathematics and science, and provide you with a variety of challenging and fun activities—from athletics to student government and beyond—then Mercy is the place for you.

"A good beginning is of great importance."
– Catherine McAuley

Mercy Girls come from diverse backgrounds. Walking the halls of Mercy High School, they quickly form a sisterhood and are connected for a lifetime. Students find their voices and discover their unique gifts. Mercy Girls blossom as student leaders, enjoy extracurricular opportunities incorporating teamwork, loyalty, dedication, and leadership, and leave high school as faith-filled, intelligent, well-spoken young women who are ready to attend the colleges of their dreams and, ultimately, bring their own unique voices to the global community.

Are you ready for some MAGIC? Welcome to Mercy!
