Keep the Sisters of Mercy legacy alive and well in our school. As the original founders of our school, originally named Saint Mary's Academy, these sisters tirelessly dedicated their lives to educating Dover and the surrounding area's Catholic youth. Though no sisters teach at our school today, we want to honor them for their service to our school by establishing a scholarship fund to aid in the education of students challenged to afford our full tuition expense.
The Mercy Legacy Scholarship Initiative opens a portal of opportunity for students, made possible by your generosity. With a minimum collective investment of $25,000, a scholarship fund can be established that will empower eager minds and nurture the leaders of tomorrow. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will be a beacon of hope, providing access to unparalleled educational experiences.
In Loving Memory
