Mercy has multiple leadership opportunities.  Each year level at Mercy has a team of Class Officers and/or Steering Committee members elected by the students to represent them and plan class-wide activities. The degree to which students are expected to assume leadership increases as they move through each year level. We also offer Student Council, and all students are welcome to sit in on the meetings- elected or not!
