A Mercy education may be more affordable than you think! In keeping with our school mission, Mercy is proud to award approximately $1 Million annual in tuition assistance. We would love to have you join the Mercy family.

Financial aid is awarded by the Mercy High School Financial Aid Committee on the basis of financial need as determined by FACTS Management Grant & Aid Assessment (FACTS) and/or special requirements of the named scholarships. The total amount of financial aid distributed each year is based upon the availability of funds and the number of qualified applicants. The average award amount for 2023-24 school year is approximately $5,600.
