Laker Traditions

Laker Day

MPS Laker Day is the heart of Laker tradition and spirit. The day each year when freshmen sport yellow, sophomores don red, juniors proudly display orange and seniors lead the school in blue. With the entire student body set for competition, this community of colors creates an atmosphere of excitement you will not find in another school gym. Laker Day is the day to celebrate your Laker Pride and have a ton of fun!

Touch of Class Day

Not all learning at Mercyhurst Prep happens in the classroom. Each Spring A Touch of Class Day is a long-time and eagerly anticipated tradition. Students, teachers and staff step up the dress code a bit and wear something formal to enjoy the performance of talented members of our Mercyhurst Prep community.
