Welcome To The School Counseling Department!
“A Mercy woman is taught many things throughout her Mercy career. Her teachers, counselors and administrators become her role models.” - Mercy Student
At Mercy High School, each student is cared for and supported as an individual. School counselors serve the needs of students in the areas of academic, college, career and personal counseling. Each freshwoman is assigned a counselor who advises her and follows her progress throughout her four years at Mercy.
The guidance and counseling team at our private high school works with our freshwoman to establish a plan for the next few years. The team creates a plan and places our students into the right classes to encourage them to grow, develop talents, and become active members of the school community.
Counselors work with students, teachers, administrators, and parents to provide the best guidance and counseling services possible. School counselors are more than willing to meet with students and parents before, during, and after the school day.
The emphasis for each year is as follows:
- Freshwoman Year: Transition and academic adjustment to high school
- Sophomore Year: Career exploration and academic goals
- Junior Year: College/Career search and planning and academic progress
- Senior Year: College/Career planning, placement, and transition, and academic success
School Counseling presents a variety of informational programs for students and their parents covering such topics as standardized test interpretation, career choices and resources, college admission, financial aid planning, and NCAA information. Every Mercy junior and her parents are invited to attend an individual family conference with her counselor to discuss the college search/planning process. Mercy High School students have access to Naviance, an online resource that is valuable in helping them plan for the future.
