Why Explore Mercy?
1. Excellent Academics:
Today, Mercy stands as the only Catholic girls’ school in Baltimore authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the Middle Years Programme. Widely considered the world’s premier academic program, the IB aligns with Mercy High School’s commitment to fostering connections between student learning in the classroom and the real world.
Mercy also offers nine Signature Academic Programs. Girls who have a special interest in science, medicine, technology, law and social justice, dance, or visual arts or who want to challenge themselves academically or are looking for a highly personalized program to support learning differences or language-based learning disabilities, can explore Mercy’s unique opportunities through Signature Academic Programs.
2. Personal Focus:
Mercy’s school environment and its faculty provide students with personal focus and support parents through their daughter’s high school career. Mercy’s Adviser Program pairs each student with a faculty member for all four years, creating a special relationship with students and their families. This attention to the individual is also a key component of the four-year seminar program, which bolsters study skills and supports the college search process.
3. Strong Sisterhood:
Mercy traditions aren’t about preserving the past, they’re about creating the future. Starting with the Big Sister/Little Sister program, nurturing relationships are created, allowing for student-to-student support and mentorship opportunities. Traditions like Freshman Welcome Day, Sophomore Pin Day, Mercy Day/Ring Day, and Field Day celebrate milestones both big and small and unite current students with a network of over 8,000 Mercy alumnae.
4. Competitive Athletics:
Mercy fields 19 teams across 12 different sports, giving girls myriad opportunities to participate in high school athletics, and the athletics program is growing: varsity tennis is now a full-fledged member of the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland (IAAM) “B” conference, there are freshman teams in soccer and volleyball, and Mercy is one of only four schools in the IAAM offering JV softball. The Magic also rose to new IAAM conferences: varsity cross country moved up to the “B” conference, and varsity basketball, varsity softball, and varsity lacrosse are now in the “A” conference.
