Mercy Academy Photo #1 - Mercy offers 14 sports over three seasons for our girls to participate in. Many have try-outs and some are no-cut teams. We also offer intramural sports. Our volleyball team finished the 2008 season as state champions and ranked in the top 3 in the nation.
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.
