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 2019
“Go the Mile 20”, June, 2018


We, the Class of 2019, pledge to create a unique and unified learning environment where all are accepted, supported, and given equal opportunity to succeed. We have grown together as a family over the past four years and will always be a family no matter where we go. We will be compassionate, approachable leaders that unite all members of Mercy High School as one. We look forward to the future and will carry the spirit of Mercy and Catherine McAuley in this school year and in the rest of our lives.
