In order to provide a quality level of education along with sound preparation for high school, Mercy broadened its circle in 1990 to incorporate both grades 7 and 8. Students in grades 7 and 8 spend their day in a dedicated Middle School space, moving through six classes per day while building connections with their talented teachers, counselor, Middle School Principal, coaches, club moderators, and their many friendly peers. During these important years, they master the critically important academic foundation required for the rigorous collegiate program to follow.
Mercy Middle School offers a safe, supportive environment and provides several advantages as an all-girls school: leadership opportunities, development of a strong sense of self and an emphasis on learning styles for young women.
Although we are physically separated from the High School, the Middle School shares the same Mercy Traditions with the students in grades 9-12: Spirit Week, Masses/Liturgies, Mission Month, Arts Fest, May Day, Christmas Baskets and Retreats.
Mercy Middle School is a place where students feel welcome, comfortable to be themselves, and are able to learn and grow spiritually, academically and socially.
Middle School Academics
At Mercy Middle School each student is expected to maintain a full academic course load including Theology. Throughout the middle school journey there are a variety of opportunities for exploration and inquiry provided to students across the curricula. Mercy Middle School students are able to begin accelerated tracks in the fields of science and math as well as earn a high school credit in foreign language. All of this is provided in a small learning environment, rich in tradition, and rooted in faith.
