Tuition & Affordability

2019-2020 School Year

Tuition: $23,114

I chose Mercy because of its size and the all-female environment. Sometimes, high school can be stressful. But when you are surrounded by a group of girls who can understand and help you, it is easier to find your way. The Mercy community is a comforting and supportive place for girls from freshman year on.
