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.

Virtual Fairs 

The Archdiocese of Baltimore is hosting a series of virtual high school fairs for families interested in getting a jump start on the high school admissions process. From 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., 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. Please complete the RSVP form below to receive access details for the virtual fair, and we look forward to "seeing" you at the fair!

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 Visiting Days.

You’ll be paired with a current Mercy freshman or sophomore to participate in classes and community gatherings, meet teachers and other students, and get an idea of what life will be like as a Mercy Girl. Your Visiting Day will also allow our Admissions Department to learn all about you during a brief interview, required as part of the application process.

We are developing new and creative ways to gain that personal experience of Mercy during the 2020-2021 Admissions season. In the meantime, enjoy a brief visit to campus in the video below:
