Opening Doors: Creating Places of Welcome

Mercy students, faculty and community members collected household items over the course of two weeks to donate to Kentucky Refugee Ministries.

By the end of two weeks, Mercy Academy filled an entire minivan and a large SUV with household items like toiletries, cleaning supplies and dishes, and transported two dressers, two nightstands, multiple end tables and a six-seat dining table and chairs to help furnish the evacuees’ homes. Jamilee Vail, Donations Coordinator, and her team at Kentucky Refugee Ministries, picked up the items from Mercy on Monday, October 4.

Becky Montague, president of Mercy Academy, expressed her immense pride when she saw the items being loaded into the vehicles. “Our Mercy community embraces every need with the spirit of helping others. We strive to live the mission of Mercy every day."

6 Houses. 1 Community. We are Mercy Academy!

On Tuesday, August 17, students came to school thinking it was Mercy's annual Back-to-School-Blast, but we had an extra-fun surprise in store. After more than three years of planning, Mercy Academy officially unveiled our house system! Students met their fellow house-mates, learned about what a house is and how we plan to integrate it into our daily schedule, and even took part in their first house competition. 

Each student was randomly placed into a house consisting of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, faculty and staff members. This is a great way for our students to meet new friends who may not be in the same classes or involved in the same activities after school. 

Six Houses. One Community. We are Mercy Academy.
