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. We look forward to meeting you!

*Please note we will welcome 8th grade students first semester and 7th and 8th grade students in the second semester. If your potential 9th or 10th grade transfer student would like to set up a shadow day, please contact the Admissions Office by email or phone.*
