Activities

Mercy Vocational High School recognizes that taking part in social activities, participating in athletic events, and giving service to the community are important ingredients in a student's overall development.

That's why Mercy students are offered a menu of activities from which to choose. Those with an appetite for the arts can sing in the Mercy Choir or work on the award-winning yearbook, The Advocate.

Service to others is also an important part of the Mercy experience. Many students participate in Community Service Corps activities - providing tutoring, working with the homeless, beautifying neighborhoods, and visiting nursing homes. The recipient of the United Way of Philadelphia's Volunteer Organization of the Year Award and the President’s Volunteer Service Award, 2010, Mercy has a well recognized record of community involvement.

Rounding out the Mercy experience are special school-wide events including Mercy Day, Open House, Christmas Tableau, and Awards Day as well as special celebrations such as Junior Ring Day and Junior/Senior Proms. Producing well-rounded young men and women who are as self-confident in the social or athletic setting as they are in the workplace is what continues to set apart Mercy Vocational High School.

Cooperation, teamwork, spirit, fair play, and respect for others are developed through Mercy Vocational High School's extracurricular program.
