Mercy is a Sisterhood
Tools For School
June 17 - July 12


Our Tools For School virtual summer program was a joy to host! We loved seeing the talent, skills, and creativity of the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls from all over the peninsula. Check out this special art showcase, where you can take a virtual gallery tour of students' work exploring the power of their own voices through art and storytelling.

In accordance with the guidelines set by the San Mateo County Health Directors, our Tools for School program for this summer will be going virtual. It is Mercy’s hope to help keep families safe, while at the same time offering some educational and co-curricular opportunities.

We will be offering Tools for School virtually. We will be providing resources for virtual field trips and adventures that students can do with their siblings and families on Fridays. Additionally we plan to celebrate a virtual culminating assembly on Friday, July 10th.

The virtual program will include a Math/Science combination and English/Reading combination so that students can complete any required summer work they may have been assigned and work on strengthening their skills in these academic areas. We will also be offering American Sign Language, Art, Music and there will be some surprises also!  

Registration for Virtual Tools for School 2020 is now closed. See you next year!

Tools for School is a unique summer program tailored for incoming 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls. With a long tradition of excellence in girls education, Mercy High School Burlingame hosts a balanced mix of visual and performing arts classes, academic skills-building, and weekly educational field trips. Students can express their creativity through dance, photography, music, and 2D & 3D art. They will improve academic preparedness in math, reading, and writing classes, and learn coding basics and American Sign Language. Students will be engaged and excited by field trip destinations such as the Exploratorium, Muir Woods, Rosie the Riveter Museum, California Academy of Sciences, and the Autodesk Gallery.

At Tools for School, the girls will experience new activities, explore new topics, and visit interesting local attractions. Join this innovative summer program that helps to build a foundation of inquiry and love of learning in students, and prepares them to develop their passions in high school.
