  • If you are applying to our McAuley Program, you will also need to submit all IEP information and any evaluations you feel will be helpful for your child’s support at Mercy CTE as soon as possible.

3. Take the Entrance Test: students need to be at school by 8:45 AM on the date of the test.

4. Submit a recommendation: A recommendation is needed from a teacher, principal or counselor at your current school. Click here to access the form. Your child can obtain a hard copy of this form on the day of the entrance test.
