Hello Mercy Community,

Thank you for your patience and support in the transition to distance learning over the last several weeks.   We understand that this has been challenging and certainly not ideal.   With consultation and many conversations with students, teachers and parents, we are aware of the struggles and difficulties that this situation has presented.   However, the Mount Mercy community has shown nothing less than perseverance, resilience and ambition to continue ongoing quality education despite the circumstances.

We worked extremely hard to provide the safest, most efficient way to bring our students back into the building without compromising the physical as well as social/emotional health of our students.   Therefore, we will be returning to in-person learning on Monday, December 14th 2020.   Testing will be provided on Wednesday, December 16th in our health office.  Students will be tested throughout the day at random and parents/guardians will be notified prior to testing if selected.  

Please complete the following button in order to consent to testing.


This information is necessary in order to be in compliance with the current NYS mandated testing requirements.  Please complete the form no later than Monday, December 14th 2020.


Mrs. Michele (Sixt) Melligan '92

Head of School


"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."
