Mother of Mercy High School was an all-girls Catholic, private high school in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was one of almost 40 Sisters of Mercy secondary schools in the United States and also a Blue Ribbon School. It opened in 1915 and in 2018 merged with another Sisters of Mercy school, McAuley High School, due to lacking enrollment numbers at both schools and the nuns wanting more money. The merged school, Mercy McAuley High School, will open at McAuley's current campus in fall 2018.[7] As of 2018, the sisters are in negotiations with Cincinnati Public Schools to purchase the school building.[1]
