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


"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."
