Please, Be Our Guest!
7th and 8th grade students are invited to spend one school day at Mercy to experience our environment. We call this shadowing. Take a tour and see the amazing campus, attend classes, meet students and teachers, enjoy a complimentary lunch, and experience life at Mercy firsthand.
Shadow days for the 2017-18 school year will begin October 2, 2017. Online sign-up available soon.
On your Shadow Day, you will be assigned an underclasswoman as your personal tour guide. These assignments are made based on interest or, if you know a student at Mercy, you may request her by name.
Potential transfer students (current 9th-10th graders): Parents need to call the Admissions Office to schedule their shadow day at 248-476-2484. Proof of a minimum 3.0 GPA required. Please complete the transfer student interest form.
Please note that space is limited each day and visits must be scheduled through a parent. There are no shadow days when school is off.
