Dear Mercy Community,


There was recent information received regarding a student who tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.   Since the release of this information, we were informed that another positive case was confirmed.   These cases are unrelated and have no known contact.   Although we remain within the regulations to remain open, it has been determined that  Mount Mercy Academy will transition to Distance Learning for a 14 day period from the last day of in-person learning.   Students will be required to log into homeroom at 7:50 am followed by their regular class schedule.   In-person learning will resume on Monday, February 1, 2021 which coincides with the start of the third quarter marking period.  


Please note that all of the proper protocols have been adhered to and we remain within the guidelines of the Erie County Health Department, however we are taking precautionary steps to avoid contact and spread of any additional cases that may arise.   Mount Mercy Academy will continue to sanitize regularly and remain diligent in maintaining the necessary protocols.   Please be mindful in practicing the recommended preventative measures such as mask wearing and hand washing.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mrs. Michele Melligan  ‘92

Head of School


"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."
