Women in Medicine (WIM) will become Women in Science & Health (WISH)

While many of our WIM graduates go on to study Nursing or take Pre-Med and other health-related Pre-Professional courses in college, some choose to pursue careers in Engineering, BioEngineering, Neuroscience or other sciences. New fields of study and careers in the sciences are opening up every day. In addition, colleges and universities are interested in how high school students perform in STEM courses, especially for certain majors.

We are updating the name from WIM to Women in Science & Health (WISH) to reflect the choices of our students and accurately describe the curriculum we are offering. WISH will continue to bring in speakers from a wide variety of health fields, as before, but we will also try to incorporate more speakers and field trips in the science and tech fields, such as last year’s visit to Genentech. We hope this additional focus will enrich our program and appeal to a wide variety of our students.

2018-19 Tuition Payments Begin in July

Payments are made monthly (11 installments July - May), semi-annual (in July and December) or annual (July).

Mercy High School, like many of the other high schools, contracts with Smart Tuition for our tuition billing and collection. During the registration process, families have signed up for a payment date (5th or 20th of each month).

It is critical that your payments are made on time to avoid late fees. These late fees are the fees that Smart Tuition charges and are not set by the school.

In order for your daughter to receive her class schedule in August, upon return to school, all registration & tuition accounts must be up to date.
