Hallahan & McDevitt Transfers

Letter from Sister Rosemary Herron, RSM - President of Mercy Career & Technical High School to the families of John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School and Bishop McDevitt High School:


Dear Families of John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School and Bishop McDevitt High School, 

The closure of any Catholic High School is painful, but the losses of both John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School and Bishop McDevitt High School are heartbreaking to us at Mercy Career & Technical High School. Among us at Mercy are a number of graduates, and family of alumni. Your schools have fond memories and traditions that we hope will live on in the coming years. Catholic education is a true gift and we want you to consider continuing your son or daughter’s education at Mercy Career & Technical High School. 

Mercy Career & Technical High School is committed to providing a comprehensive career & technical education to all of our students. Mercy Tech is part of Faith in the Future, but is a private school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, and the only Catholic, co-educational career and technical high school in the United States. Our students receive a high school diploma and industry recognized licenses and certifications in one of our seven career paths as part of our high school experience. Mercy Tech provides students the best opportunity to succeed upon graduation and beyond, whether that be college, the workforce, or both. 

We invite you to visit Mercy Tech virtually on Wednesday, January 20th, 2021 at 6:30PM. Please bring any questions or concerns you may have to that meeting.  Our Admissions Team will be happy to answer them for you and your child.



I hope our prayers and well-wishes help guide you through these times.  Please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at 215-226-1225, ext. 153 or through email at admissions@mercycte.org if there is anything we can do to support you.






Sister Rosemary Herron, RSM
