Shadow a Student

Mercy High School Farmington Hills, Michigan

Shadow dates will begin in September 2020.

Please, Be Our Guest!

7th and 8th grade or potential 9th and 10th grade transfer students are invited to spend one school day at Mercy to experience our environment. We call this shadowing. Take a tour and see the amazing campus, attend classes, meet students and teachers, enjoy a complimentary lunch, and experience life at Mercy firsthand.

On your Shadow Day, you will be assigned an underclasswoman as your personal tour guide. These assignments are made based on interest or, if you know a student at Mercy that is in 9th or 10th grade, you may request her by name.

Available shadow dates will be listed on the drop down menu in the online form. Please note that shadow days are capped and fill up fast. If a date is not listed on the form below, it is either not a shadow day or is already full.
