Schoology

Mercyhurst Preparatory School is now using Schoology (skoo.luh.jee) an integrated learning management solution (LMS) that provides course management, mobile learning, and support for system-wide communication. Schoology enables our students, parents and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom and beyond. We began using Schoology in our classrooms in Fall 2019 to enhance connectivity and communication across Mercyhurst Prep.

With Schoology, students can digitally submit homework assignments, review grades, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements and feedback, take tests, write academic blogs, and more. As a parent, you will be able to view your child’s activity within the platform.

You and your child will be given login credentials to access the Mercyhurst Preparatory School Schoology system at https://lms.mpslakers.com (lmslearning management system). Students will be provided with login credentials on their first day of school.

Parent Access Codes for each student will become available in mid-August. At that time, parents of new students will receive a letter containing instructions on how to create, log into, and use your parent aaccount. Parents can also locate help with the Getting Started Guide at https://www.mpslakers.com/schoology-parents.

We value your participation in your child’s education, and we encourage you to read Schoology’s Privacy Policy & Terms of Use at https://www.schoology.com/privacy. Student progress and activity will be monitored by faculty to ensure a safe, secure, and controlled environment.

If you have questions regarding Schoology, please send an email to Ms. Kristin Lynch at klynch@mpslakers.com.
