Mercy High School, Burlingame is in the quiet phase of the Building the Dream campaign to build an Athletic and Student Life Center on campus.
Mercy is the only school of the 14 high schools in the Archdiocese of San Francisco that does not have it's own indoor space for athletics and school-wide gatherings. It is time to create a campus facility to support these needs that will allow our girls to grow. The Campaign is a defining moment for Mercy. It will secure our legacy of educating young women while enabling them to reach new heights beyond the classroom. In fulfilling this mission, the Center will allow us to further empower women leaders to be the problem solvers of tomorrow.
We look forward to building a space that will reflect the beauty of our historic ‘oak-clad acres’, and honor the deep sense of community of Mercy High School, Burlingame.
