Life Changing Logo reduced copy copyOur Lady of Mercy School for Young Women is the only college preparatory, faith-based private school, exclusively for young women in the Rochester region. We welcome all girls entering grades six through 12 — inclusive of all incomes, races, and faith affiliations — who are seeking an alternative to public school or who wish to continue to pursue a faith-based education. Mercy builds life-changing competence, confidence, and compassion that prepares and inspires young women to achieve the highest level of success in college, in career, and in the community.

We are proud to welcome young women and their families to our annual Open House on October 26, 2017. The evening has been created exclusively for potential new students who are interested in learning more about becoming a part of the Circle of Mercy! Bring the whole family and enjoy a fun and informative evening. Refreshments will be served.
