How to Become a Mercy Girl

At Mercy, our most important admissions requirement is that applicants must have a real desire to attend our school.  We've established the following admissions process to help us get to know one another

1. Spend a day shadowing during your 7th or 8th grade year.  If shadowing is not available, this requirement can be waived.  
2. Start your application to sign-up for the 8th Grade Scholarship & Placement Exam at Mercy on January 13, 2024. 
3. Go through a one-on-one interview with a member of the administrative team on January 15, 2024.  

You will be informed of our decision regarding your acceptance by the middle of February.

A limited number of students will be admitted each year.  It is highly recommended that you fulfill your shadow requirement as early as possible.  This signals your desire to attend Mercy.  In the event that the class fills to capacity, students will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis according to when interest in attending Mercy was first demonstrated.

Transfer Students

Take the first step to transfer to Mercy by having your transcripts faxed to 402.553.0394 or emailed to Sammie Becker at Once we receive your records and determine that you can be successful at Mercy, we will begin the transfer student admissions process. The transfer process includes shadowing for a day, submitting an essay stating why you want to attend Mercy, and going through an interview with a member of the administrative team.

Transfer students are allowed to transfer at first or early second semester. Mercy High School does not accept senior transfer students unless they have recently moved to the Omaha area.
