On May 19, 2021, 79 members of the Class of 2021 graduated at the Holland Performing Arts Center.

The ceremony began with Senior Class President Anou Akot leading the seniors in their class prayer. Then, the Class of 2021 vocal ensemble sang the "Suscipe" as is tradition. Clare Euteneuer was named Valedictorian, and Carolyn Hire was Salutatorian. Both spoke about the importance of a Mercy education and shared words of wisdom with their class. 

Principal Kristi Walters Wessling '88 read the college scholarships that each senior was awarded, totaling in $9.67 million. To cap off the ceremony, Assistant Principal Holly McCoy read the names of the graduates as they walked across the stage to receive their diplomas from President Sr. Delores Hannon.
