When we receive a completed application, the Admissions Committee begins a comprehensive, holistic review of the application. In other words, we consider the applicant as a whole individual, not merely select parts. We strive to find students who will contribute to our community in meaningful ways, both academically and through our robust extracurricular programs . Therefore, one part of the application is not "more important" than the other parts.

Yes. We are able to provide some accommodations but we do not modify the curriculum. Students with documented educational plans who are accepted to Mercy will meet with the Assistant Principal and School Counselor before the beginning of the school year to set up a Student Support Plan.
