Marked by Pride and Spirit
Nearly 8,000 worldwide, Mercyhurst Prep alumni are confident, connected and humane leaders who succeed at the nation’s top colleges and universities and then launch into phenomenal careers. Lakers are all Marked by Pride & Spirit.
To our students, the spirit of being a Laker means that their unique interests and talents are embraced, encouraged and respected by a welcoming, compassionate MPS community with a keen focus on academic success.
The pride and spirit of a Laker remains as alive today as it was from our very founding in 1926 because the Mercy charism is woven into every facet of the school. It is found in our words, our actions, our symbols. It’s in the Laker air: hospitality, compassionate presence, service, justice and respect for the dignity of all persons. It is what a Laker is.
and concern for the dignity of all persons.
The IB program is based on the concept that general education at the upper secondary level should promote the development of the lifelong skills of critical thinking, communication, and integration of the information through an in depth study of the major areas of knowledge. Successful completion of the program earns for the student a diploma/certificate recognized for university admission and for course credit at many colleges and universities throughout the world. The IB’s greatest value, however, lies in its intrinsic worth as a challenge and a symbol of the greater achievement to which the student has aspired.
