Mercy Scholars Diploma Program

The Mercy Scholars Diploma Program was designed in 2006 to create a unique learning environment and experience for the gifted students it serves. Ideally, these students are the ones who enthusiastically meet and master a true intellectual challenge, as well as answer the call for service within the community and beyond. They promote leadership and have the fervor necessary to be well-rounded students. The particular standards selected for participants of this program are based on our desire to support our gifted students and nurture their desire to learn in and out of the classroom.

Our emphasis begins with student achievement but thrives on student potential. A student pursuing the distinction of the Mercy Scholar Diploma should not see it as a checklist of details but as a journey of true achievement, one that will continue ad infinitum.

“The Mercy Scholar Diploma Program gave me the opportunity to really expand the horizons of my education at Mercy. We had opportunities to more deeply delve into forensic science, great books, architecture, emerging technologies, and so many other topics that have made me a more global citizen and sparked an enthusiasm for continued learning outside the classroom. The group provided an extremely stimulating environment for enlightening discussions and I have maintained many of the friendships I formed in Mercy Scholars my freshman year.”

Advanced Placement (AP) Program

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is administered by The College Board of New York. This program allows students to participate in college-level courses and earn college credit. Secondary schools and colleges cooperate in this program to give students the opportunity to show mastery in college-level courses by taking the AP exam each May.

AP classes are more challenging and stimulating, and they require more time and work than other courses. AP classes require energetic, involved, and motivated students. Mercy gives extra grade point weight on a student's GPA for taking an AP course and exam. The AP tests are required for all AP students.
