Dear Mercy Parents/Guardians:
The mission of Mercy High School is to educate and inspire young women of diverse backgrounds to lead and serve with compassion. To better serve the diverse learning needs of our student body we are excited to introduce our new Student Learning Liaison, Dr. Kristine Daley, and launch our new Academic Mentoring and Educational Support Program (AMES).
Dr. Daley comes to Mercy from Father Gabriel Richard High School (FGR) where she served as a Learning Resource Specialist and Director in the Learning Resource Center since 2012. Dr. Daley is a licensed clinical psychologist and prior to her work at FGR worked at St. Joseph Mercy Outpatient Behavioral Services using treatment approaches such as cognitive-behavioral, psycho-dynamic, and play therapy. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at College of St Benedict, her Ph.D in Clinical Psychology from California School of Professional Psychology, and her teacher certification and special education endorsement from Eastern Michigan University. She worked with Mercy's staff as well as visited and researched other support programs at U of D, Divine Child, Father Gabriel Richard and other Mercy High Schools across the network to develop Mercy's AMES program.
We believe that all young women can succeed academically when provided the proper curriculum and academic supports and believe this program will provide the tools and guidance to help all our students reach their academic potential. Please join us in welcoming our new Student Learning Liaison, Dr. Daley, and the Academic Mentoring and Educational Support Program. To visit the new webpage on Mercy's website, click here.
