The administration works diligently on behalf of our families to ensure Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women offers the highest quality educational opportunities possible... while simultaneously focusing on affordability.


The advantages of an all-girl environment
An all-girl school promotes a high level of comfort among students — so learning becomes easy! When a student is at ease, she will ask more questions, freely share her insights, and encourage her classmates.

A gifted faculty
All Mercy educators either hold a graduate degree or are a fully-credentialed expert in their feld. Each and every teacher is passionate about what they do and are dedicated to working with the students to help them succeed. Our faculty continues to reflect on their practice to support students in becoming globally prepared to make a difference in the world.

A tremendous return on investment
Mercy students experience personal growth, increased opportunities, and develop a strong sense of self-confdence and leadership. In addition, graduates receive a high level of acceptance at colleges and universities, and earn an average of $188,000 in total scholarships among their school choices.

Multiple Daughter Award - Mercy offers an award to families who have more than one daughter enrolled at Our Lady of Mercy. Every family that applies will receive an award; it is applied to the second, third and fourth daughter's tuition. It will range from $500-$2,000 per student, based on the number of families (with multiple daughters) that apply each year and (a lighter consideration of) the family's income. If this benefit is of interest to your family, it is required that you complete the confidential on-line FACTS financial aid application by March 16, 2018.
