Learning to Lead

“Mercy women know how to lead by example for those who follow or those who have lost their way. Being a woman of Mercy is about how you carry yourself and act when no one is looking.” - Mercy Student

Mercy High School prepares women to be leaders - leaders in the classroom, in campus ministry, on the athletic fields, in community service, and in their class, club and school activities. Each summer, members of the new senior class are invited to participate in Go The Mile, an overnight experience designed to prepare them to be the leaders in their school. During Go The Mile, the seniors write the mission statement that will guide them as leaders during the coming school year.

Student Leaders’ Mission Statement
Class of 2018
“Go the Mile 20”, June, 2017


We, the Senior Class of 2018, are a unique, diverse patchwork of Mercy sisters.
Like a quilt, we stitch together our individual gifts and backgrounds to create a welcoming,
faith-based community.  In order to accomplish this goal, we lead by example, to inspire and strengthen our immediate and global communities.  We vow to always protect and support each other in all aspects of life.  We will cherish our time together at Mercy and be confident that the Circle of Mercy will always welcome us back with open arms and a comfortable cup of tea.
