Dear Mercy Parents/Guardians:

Program on Personal Safety

Dear Freshwomen Parents:

Since 2007, the United States Council of Catholic Bishops has required all high schools to present an educational program on personal safety to all of its 9th and 10th grade students. The program selected by the Archdiocese of Detroit for the 9th grade is "Called to Protect." The 9th grade program teaches teens how to recognize personal boundaries (physical, emotional, behavioral) and also how to respond if someone attempts to violate any of those boundaries.

BBFA Program

Dear Mercy Parents/Guardians:

Please see information below about a free community parent program offered by the BBFA (Building Better Families through Action). BBFA is a non-profit community organization that promotes healthy families by actively educating, informing and providing tools to parents and the community about healthy parenting as well as the prevention of substance abuse and other destructive behaviors.

Uniform Update & Spirit Wear

Uniform Information 2017 - 2018 

Mercy Families:

Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, the uniform will be simplified. The kilt patterns, blouses, and polos will remain the same. The sweater and quarter-zip color options will change. All grades will wear the same color black sweaters (cardigan and v-neck) and quarter-zips. 

This change was made because the other quarter-zip colors were becoming difficult to obtain. Students who have already purchased maroon or gray sweaters and maroon or white quarter-zips may still wear those colors, but, those colors will no longer be available for purchase.
