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 

The Archdiocese of Baltimore will be hosting virtual high school fairs for families interested in the high school admissions process. Families will have the opportunity to engage representatives from Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The sessions will provide a glimpse into the admissions process, highlight signature programs, and share information regarding scholarships, financial aid, transportation, and much more! Participating schools will rotate live video sessions and families may register for up to four. We look forward to "seeing" you at the fairs which will take place on September 28, October 6, and October 19. For more information from the Archdiocese of Baltimore regarding high school admission, please visit their online high school guide.

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 brief visit to campus in the video below:
