A full time certified college and career advisor is available to all students on a drop-in or appointment basis. The college counselor coordinates college representative visits to Mercy, meets individually with students to assist them with researching and developing a college application list, and maintains up-to-date informational materials and resources.
Mercy utilizes Naviance Family Connection, giving both students and parents the opportunity to navigate the college and career exploration process by setting up their own web accounts. The seniors attend college and essay writing workshops and receive personal assistance as they progress through the college application process. The counselors work collaboratively to develop new programs for the students throughout their four years at Mercy.
There are parent nights for each grade level, often bringing in speakers on relevant topics, and junior and senior families have college and financial aid nights. Families are encouraged to contact the College Counselor for information and advice.
