In conjunction with Mercyhurst University,
we offer a special program for academically able students who wish to begin university course work or who want to pursue a subject in greater depth.
The high school and the university campuses are adjoined by a short walkway, so both schools are easily accessible to each other either by driving or walking.
MPS students can begin taking evening or summer classes for credit at Mercyhurst University at the end of their sophomore year. Our students are granted a very substantial tuition discount by Mercyhurst University for each course. The university grants full credit for such courses and sends a transcript of the student’s work to the college of his/her choice.
Seniors at Mercyhurst (SAM)
Through the SAM program students have the opportunity to complete their senior year at Mercyhurst Prep and their freshman year at Mercyhurst University simultaneously. Students who are recommended for the program work with both the high school and university counselors for selection of courses and may also be eligible for financial aid.
