Welcome to Mercy High School

The phrase The Circle of Mercy is Timeless  is more than a slogan - it describes what Mercy High School is all about. It speaks to who Mercy Women are, what they learn, and how they know - and to the heart of the Mercy experience. In the words of alumnae of the Class of 2010:

  • “Mercy is a community of women who know who they are and embrace their gifts and talents. They are poised, classy young women who follow in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley. Women of Mercy have goals and they know who they want to be. Guided by their heart and spirit, Mercy women are the leaders of today.”
  • “Mercy women know that it's not important whether or not you are the best athlete or first in your class but that you are the best person that you can be.”
  • “Mercy girls know that they deserve respect as women and individuals. We know never to let anyone look down on us or treat us in a way that disrespects our God-given dignity. The all-girls environment is the perfect place to learn these important lessons about self-value and self-respect before entering college and the larger world.”
  • “We know that Mercy is a second home and that the faculty and staff will always show compassion. We take pride in our education and our faith. We know Mercy will always have a spot in our hearts.”
  • “Mercy women know how to be themselves. We learn how to express ourselves and to accept other people for what they truly are. We develop good self-esteem and know how to respect others.”
