Renovated Academic Success Center
A critical goal of Mercy High School, as articulated in our strategic plan, is ensuring educational excellence through integrated support for our students. As part of that vision, Mercy’s Academic Success Center was created in 2014. In the summer of 2020, the area received a comprehensive renovation. This student-centered and caring, physical environment focuses on academic assistance and outcomes, college advising, and provides emotional support and services to meet students’ needs while fostering personal attention and support.
Student service staff who support these functions are now housed in one area to accommodate integrated and collaborative efforts. Personnel includes counseling staff, the ESL specialist and the Academic Success Coordinator. Completely paid for by generous donations from the Lozier Corporation and the Heider Family Foundation, the area features flexible configurations, break-out work zones, writeable wall placements, conversational areas, a conference room, movable furniture and an open concept plan. Light and airy, large glass windows offer a welcoming environment for dialogue and discussion.
