Apply for Admission
Inspired by the charism of the Sisters of Mercy, we foster academic excellence in an innovative and creative learning environment. We are committed to helping each student pursue her individual passions and develop into a confident, independent, compassionate, and socially conscious young woman. We actively strive for a diverse population, seeking students from many different backgrounds. If you are ready to provide your daughter a top-notch, college-ready education within an empowering community of faith and leadership, Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women is the ideal school.
We look for students who are bright, motivated, hard-working, and who are dedicated to the core Mercy values of compassion, hospitality, and community. An application to Mercy is completed in four simple steps:
- An online application
- Academic transcript/record
- Recommendation form sent to a teacher/school staff member who worked directly with your daughter within the last two years
- Grade-specific entrance exam
In order to provide the best experience for your daughter, we strongly encourage all applications to be completed no later than June 1. Applications completed after June 1 are subject to remaining enrollment openings. If you have any questions about the admissions process or applications to Mercy, please contact Stephanie Yaeger Wallace ‘89 P’23 P’24, Director of Enrollment Management at 585-288-7120 x310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
