Seventh and 8th graders at Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women spend their day in our small, comfortable, dedicated middle school space, taking just a few steps between classes. It is a transition from 6th grade as now each student is asked to manage eight classes (participating in six classes per day). They learn to manage this schedule while building valuable connections with their talented teachers, counselor, principal, coaches, club moderators, and their many friendly peers.

Middle School experts will share that this is perhaps the most critical developmental time for young women, as each is challenged to discover and build her social confidence, moral compass, and academic building blocks for the rigorous and exciting collegiate program to follow. Mercy works toward ensuring our student grows and develops in a healthy and fulfilling manner providing a safe, supportive environment and drawing on the many 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 our students and their families feel welcome and an integral part of our community. Our parents will tell you that they are grateful that they invested in their daughter and offered her this valuable, transformational middle school experience.

Mercy is proud of our One-to-One Technology Program! Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, each 7th and 8th grade student will be issued a Chromebook that she can use throughout the school year. Teachers utilize this technology on a daily basis, integrating lectures and assignments for a smooth transition of educational resources between home and the classroom. Chromebook image
