Mercy High School is an all-girls high school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy with an enrollment of 390 students. The school is located in Kohl Mansion, a historic site in Burlingame, California, 15 miles south of San Francisco. For more than 85 years Mercy has inspired young women to achieve great things.

Each day, our students see girls learning, growing and achieving – and take advantage of the myriad of opportunities to do the same. At Mercy, young women are known, challenged and transformed.
