At Mercy High School, girls from 64 zip codes develop a commitment to excellence, hospitality, service, justice, and compassion. A Catholic, college preparatory school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, we educate bright and creative girls in grades 9 through 12. Founded in 1960, Mercy is proud to carry forward the extraordinary legacy of Mercy education, which began in Baltimore in 1867. Today, Mercy stands as the only Catholic girls’ school in the Archdiocese of Baltimore authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School, offering the Middle Years Programme. Student inquiry, intellectual risk-taking, and international mindedness permeate our classrooms and ensure Mercy Girls are well-prepared for college and beyond.
