Mount Mercy Academy Southern Tier Transportation


Mount Mercy Academy is excited to begin offering transportation to our Southern Tier families beginning in September of the 2023 school year. This has taken some time to implement however we are ecstatic to finally launch this project. We have wanted nothing more than to be able to give Southern Tier families an option for private, Catholic High School and we have worked hard to make this happen. We are thrilled! 

The bus will have two pick up/drop off spots - the West Alley Municipal Parking lot in Fredonia and the entrance to Evangola State Park on Route 5 in Farnham. Pick up in Fredonia is 6:45am and pick up in Farnham is 7:15am. Drop off at the end of the day will be 3:40pm in Farnham and 4:10pm in Fredonia. This pick up/drop off plan will be evaluated by Mount Mercy administration and parents after the 2023-24 school year.

The current cost incurred by families will be between $1,500 and $2,000 per student for the year. The cost will not go over $2,000, however, we are hoping that cost can come down if we continue to add students. The remaining costs will be paid by Mount Mercy Academy.

We are so excited for our families, and for the future growth of this program. Please Julie DeCarolis, Director of Operations if you have any questions - jdecarolis@mtmercy.org.

"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."
