Mercymount Country Day School believes that each of our students is the unique gift of a loving God. Faculty, staff, administration and parents work daily to build relationships and form a Christ-centered community - one of our proudest hallmarks.
Community at Mercymount is built on integrity and respect for each person. These values are learned by younger students, modeled by older students, and reinforced by educators throughout the life of the school.

Mercymount’s community is a strength of the school, and it gives the school strength. We look forward to welcoming new members and continuing to affirm those who are with us each day.
