Shadow Hostess

Students are welcome to shadow a Mercy student that they already know, or we will pair students who share common interests in classes and extracurricular activities.  Each Mercy student is only allowed to have one shadow visitor per day.

“When I shadowed at Mercy, I just knew from the start that this is where I was supposed to be. I felt apart of the community and was very welcomed by both the students and staff. Shadowing at any high school is a great way to experience a student’s daily life and to imagine your future self in their place. Looking back as a senior, I have grown so much and know that whatever my future may hold, Mercy will always be a part of me!” - Sydney '24

"Shadowing is a very important aspect in your high school decision. It gives you a real look into the life of a Mercy girl, and lets you see how the girls interact with their friends, classmates and teachers, and honestly what high school is like for a day. My advice for students looking at high schools is to make sure you look at several schools, and choose the place where you, personally, will thrive and be successful." -Alli '25

“Shadowing at Mercy was an experience that I did not have at any other high school. The first time I walked through the doors when I shadowed in 8th grade, I felt a sense of belonging even though I hardly knew anyone. I was drawn into the community of Mercy girls and I knew it was meant to be a part of that.” - Samantha '26

*In order to create the best shadowing experience we ask for three days notice.  Any questions please contact Sammie Becker at (402)553-9424 or*
