  • Mercy Academy helps each student nourish her faith and strengthen her Christian values.
  • Our goal is for each student to become a woman of mercy, beautifully expressed in the mercy creed as a woman rooted in the values of Jesus; a woman well educated and self-disciplined; a woman enriched by diversity and tolerant of differences; a woman compassionate and generous; and a woman able to lead and willing to serve; who graciously shares these Mercy values with others.
