Mercy partners with El Colegio Santa Ethnea, a Mercy school in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to develop the Mercy Ambassador Exchange Program.
Each year, students from Santa Ethnea stay with Mercy students and their families for four weeks in January or February. They come to school with our students and participate in retreats, school activities, service, etc. In June, our Mercy students then travel to Buenos Aires to participate in similar activities at Santa Ethnea for four weeks.
This is an incredible program to develop language and cultural study, while providing an opportunity for deeper understanding of the far-reaching mission and charism of the Sisters of Mercy.
Mercy partners with Trinity High School for a scientific research trip in Costa Rica during the summer. Over the course of 10 days, students design and implement their own unique research projects, all while exploring their beautiful surroundings!
This is a great opportunity for those who enjoy working in the environment and learning more about science.

This high-energy weekend is a favorite memory for Mercy students year after year.
