Mercy Home is not a school. But we send them to the school that will best help them succeed. We send our young people to more than 50 different elementary, high schools, trade schools and colleges throughout the Chicago area in order to match them with the academic setting that best meets their individual strengths and needs.
Seventy percent of our young people in residential programs attend parochial schools, while 27% attend public schools, and 3% attend private, non-sectarian schools. Additionally, our AfterCare team offers continued academic support for those who have left the full-time care of the Home, even in some cases providing scholarships.
