*The shadow program is now complete for the 2016-17 school year. Please note shadows for the 2017-18 school year will begin in October.*
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.
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.
Arrival: 7:45 a.m. to the Reception Area, located on the east side of the school building. Please pull into Mercy’s campus from 11 Mile Rd. When you pull up the drive, the long sidewalk straight ahead of you is the visitor entrance.
Attire: Beginning April 3rd, shadow students may dress in comfortable, casual clothing. This includes jeans and tennis shoes, but leggings are not permitted. (This is due to our Sweepstakes Drive out of uniform privileges.)
Lunch: A lunch is provided in the Mercy cafeteria
Cell phone policy: All visitors must adhere to the Mercy High School cell phone policy. The use of cell phones during the school day (8:00 a.m.–2:37p.m.) is prohibited. Cell phones must be on silent or vibrate during the school day. In the event that a student needs to use a phone during the school day, she may come to the Reception Area and use her phone or the school phone.
Pick-Up: School dismisses at 2:37 p.m. Parents may return to the Reception Area at this time to pick up their daughters.
11 Mile Construction
11 Mile Road will be completely closed between Orchard Lake and Middlebelt. The construction is expected to be completed by late July. Drivers who are affected by the closure will need to take an alternate route to get to Mercy High School.
