Next 90 Campaign to Create Transformational Change

Thank you for helping Mercyhurst Prep celebrate 90 years of Mercy excellence!

With your help, Mercyhurst Preparatory School is well on its way to making the transformational change to take us into the “Next 90” years. If you haven’t been in to see the changes, we welcome you in for a tour of our Hirt DREAM Labs (design-research-engineering-arts-math), and our renovated Vorsheck Library and Research Center, Performing Arts Center [PAC], cafeteria, Hilbert Lobby, Our Lady of Mercy Chapel, and Bell Family Faculty Suite.

Our new MPS Performing Arts Center [PAC] was renovated in 2016, but you can still get involved by sponsoring a PAC theatre seat.

You can be a part of these exciting projects! Your donation of any size is extremely helpful and there are naming opportunities ranging from the theatre seats above to naming the Performing Arts Center and the Cafeteria after your family! What a wonderful way to leave a legacy!

Broadway actor Nick Adams ’01 is the honorary chair of the Performing Arts Center campaign and had a special message for audiences before each performance of The King and I. Please watch and consider leaving your legacy in this space.
