San Francisco, California – Mercy High School, one of the last remaining all-girls Catholic schools in San Francisco, will cease operations at the end of this school year on June 1, 2020, the Sisters of Mercy announced today.
“It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of Mercy High School, an independent Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy for the last 68 years,” said Sister Carolyn Krohn ‘65, RSM, head of school.
The school is working to transition current students as well as those potential new students who were considering Mercy for the 2020-21 year. They will be working with parents as well as with Catholic, public, and independent school administrators to help facilitate the move of members of the Classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023 to other schools. School administrators are also working closely with Mercy High School, Burlingame, to explore what opportunities may exist for current San Francisco students to continue their Mercy education.
“During the coming weeks and months, Mercy’s focus will be on our students, our faculty, and our staff. Classes and activities will continue as normal as the integrity of our educational program and the welfare of our students are of the greatest importance,” Sister Carolyn said.
