There's a place for YOU at Mount Mercy Academy!

Our Discover Mercy Shadow Program allows prospective students to visit our school and see what it’s like to be a Mercy Girl. Our Discover Mercy shadow days are designed to give girls individualized attention while showing everything Mercy has to offer. Our guests will listen to our Student Ambassadors and Mercy faculty talk about the exceptional educational opportunities and the number of sports, clubs and unique programs we offer. Guests will also sit in on classes and shadow students during the school day. Don’t miss out on this exciting way to experience Mercy!

Discover Mercy shadow days are currently being held on select dates through November. Students will spend the day at Mercy from 9am until 2:30pm. However, we can accommodate a change in schedule if needed. Spots are limited to 8 guests per day to allow for social distancing guidelines. Please note that each guest will be required to wear a mask.

The Discover Mercy shadow program is also open to current high school students enrolled elsewhere who are interested in transferring. Let us give you a positive experience spending the day at Mercy!

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you!

I am here to help your family navigate through this high school journey! I understand this process can be overwhelming and complicated, especially in our current climate of ever changing guidelines and direction. I would love to be a source of guidance and assistance in making a Mercy education possible for your daughter. I am here to make it happen! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for your family.

"Mount Mercy has positively changed my life forever. Through the inviting community, I was able to grow as a woman, as a daughter, as a friend, and as a member of society. Throughout my time here I have gained an education in both academic areas and life in general through the school's ongoing efforts to educate students on gender inequality, racial injustice, and environmental crisis'. Furthermore, Mercy has given me the space to gain confidence that 4 years ago I never would have guessed I would have. Mount Mercy has helped me take that initial step toward becoming the strong woman of color I am today. At Mercy you are more than just a student, you are whoever you wish to be."

"My future, success, and the ability to be an empowered woman in society come from Mount Mercy. My school is a strong foundation for my role in life. From attending Mount Mercy, I can say with confidence, that I will graduate with the mindset that I can accomplish anything. Mercy is my home and my sanctuary to be whoever I want. Mount Mercy has been bringing forth generations of strong intellectual women into the world, and I am more than honored to be one of them. Mercy teaches girls more than academics, but also about the world around us. As a mercy community, we give back to the world because it is our home. From my four years at Mercy, I have been educated on pushing for equality and peace and the understanding that there is no limit to what I can do. I have the confidence to go out in the world and make a difference because being a Mercy girl has given me that opportunity. "

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
