Discover What Mercy Is All About!
Discover Mercy 2017
“Discover Mercy” is a morning program offered for fifth, sixth and seventh grade girls and their parents to experience Mercy by enjoying activities, student performances and informal conversations with Mercy students, parents, administrators and faculty. The event was held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Check back for the "Discover Mercy" 2018 date!
During "Discover Mercy," girls have the opportunity to spend time in the classrooms with faculty and students while attending “classes” such as Chemistry of Tie-Dyeing, Creative Writing, Field Hocky Clinic, Mini Mock Trial, and Show Choir Workshop. Meanwhile, parents may attend an informal question and answer session and participate in programs designed especially for them. Following the morning program, everyone is invited to lunch in the cafeteria and experience a performance by the Mercy/Xavier "Vocal Dimension" Show Choir. Mercy Student Ambassadors are available to lead tours of the school at any time during the morning, including a stop at the school store!
“Thank you so much for hosting Discover Mercy. My daughter had a great time and now understands why I loved high school so much. It was a great day for her and great day for me to be back and see all that has changed."
"My daughter had a terrific time Saturday at Discover Mercy. Decorating cupcakes and tie-dyeing the t-shirt were huge hits for her. She didn't have any friends who attended Saturday but felt comfortable and is excited to go next year too!"
