 Become a Mercy Girl for a Day!  This shadow program offers prospective Mercy girls a chance to experience what a typical student's day is like. Eighth graders will spend the day shadowing a current student, who will take them to classes, share time with them during breaks and lunch (lunch is free!), and receive a tour. There's nothing like it!

Academic Records and Transcript Forms  You will receive a confirmation email upon completing the application.  This will prompt you to print the application and sign it at the bottom. This acts as the consent to release your daughter's academic records.   Please turn this in to her Current school, and request that 6th,7th, and most recent 8th grade records be sent to Mount Mercy Academy. (Be sure to include report cards, testing scores, attendance records and any IEP/504 information if that applies) All students are reviewed for acceptance prior to addressing scholarships and financial aid.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
