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 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 brand new Hirt DREAM Labs (design-research-engineering-arts-math), and our newly renovated Cafeteria, Vorsheck Library and Research Center, Hilbert Lobby, Our Lady of Mercy Chapel and Bell Family Faculty Suite.

The next phase of our renovations is the long awaited MPS Performing Arts Center, scheduled for summer 2016.  You can 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!

The MPS Performing Arts Center Renovation Campaign is in full swing.  Broadway actor Nick Adams ’01 is the honorary chair of the campaign and recently had a special message for audiences before each performance of The King and I. Please watch and consider leaving your legacy in the space that will be transformed very soon.  For more information, you can go to
