Students with Learning Differences 

At Mercy, we provide support for success in our college preparatory program.

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.
