    Mercy is an excellent high school. When I started college I was far more advanced than most of my peers. Mercy taught me how to think critically which is the most valuable skill of my life. Mercy teaches girls how to be women of Mercy everyday. The environment is safe the teachers are friendly and Mercy makes learning fun. This school is the absolute best of the best and is responsible for many of Louisville's upstanding citizens.

    Mercy Academy is truly a wonderful school. It has a great atmosphere teachers and some amazing people who will affect you for years to come. The curriculum challenges you but it never unmanageable. The teachers there are some of the best around. They make the classroom setting relaxed and they are always willing to go out of their way to help you whether it is staying after calling you or doing whatever it takes to assist you. They won t stop until they have done everything they can. That is dedication to making the students succeed.

    Mercy Academy is an amazing school. Every girl there is treated as a unique individual. Many of the teachers are willing to spend one-on-one time with the students and even hand out their home phone numbers so students may call with questions. The atmosphere at Mercy provides a safe place for learning and a place that feels like home.
