Transfers & Transitions - Mercy High School

Personal Focus. Global Perspective. Mercy Changes Everything.

Transfers & Transitions

There are any number of reasons a student might find herself in the process of looking for a new school to attend. Whether it is a cross-country move, the decision to transition out of home schooling or any other number of personal, social or academic reasons, Mercy High School welcomes academically qualified, intellectually-curious students to consider exploring what makes Mercy Magic.

Mercy’s strong sense of community, small class-sizes and rigorous academic programming are just a few reasons why Mercy might be the perfect fit for students seeking to make a mid-year or post 9th Grade transition. Additionally, Mercy has a number of key supports in place for a student entering at a non-traditional point in her high-school career, including our adviser program, seminar program, and school traditions, aimed at community bonding.
