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 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.

Shadowing is a great opportunity to spend a day as a Laker and experience first hand what it might be like to attend Mercyhurst Prep. The day starts out as you enter beneath our massive Laker Mural and ends with new friends and anticipation of experiences yet to come. Transfer students are welcome to shadow, and 8th graders from private schools are welcome to invite a friend from a public school, if they like.
