Virtual Admissions - Mercy High School

Personal Focus. Global Perspective. Mercy Changes Everything.

Virtual Admissions

Until we can invite you to our extraordinary campus again, Mercy would like to give you and your daughter several options for learning more about our mission to provide a rigorous education for girls marked by academic excellence and personal attention.

Meet Us

Personal attention is one of the hallmarks of a Mercy education, and that experience begins now! Our Admissions Team is eager to meet you and hear your specific questions. Schedule a one-on-one conversation via video conference or by phone by contacting us at to schedule a time. We are here to help!

Virtual Fairs 

We know that this year's admissions events look different than before. Our commitment to YOU, however, and to helping you navigate the process hasn't changed. Join us from the comfort of your own home at one of the virtual high school fairs the Archdiocese of Baltimore is hosting to talk with Mercy Girls and members of our administration. The sessions will provide what you need to know about Mercy's admissions process, highlight our signature programs, and share information regarding scholarships, financial aid, transportation, and much more! Be sure to select Mercy for one of your live video sessions when you register. We look forward to "seeing" you at the fairs which will take place on September 28, October 6, and October 19. Register for one of the sessions on the Archdiocese of Baltimore's website, and check out the online high school guide as well.

Virtual Visiting Days

Experience the MAGIC of Mercy! One of the best ways to learn about life as a Mercy Girl is to share a day with one, which is precisely what happens on our Virtual Visiting Days.

Your Virtual Visiting Day will allow you to meet with our Admissions Department, experience what classroom learning is like at Mercy, and speak with our current Mercy Students about any questions you may have! It will allow our Admissions Department to learn all about you during a virtual interview, required as part of the application process. Don't forget to fill out an inquiry before your visiting day; We can't wait to get to know you! 


Until then, enjoy a special virtual tour of campus in the video below:
