Founded in 1912 by the Sisters of Mercy, we are Maine’s only Catholic college with nearly 1,000 students.

We provide a values-centered education that serves students’ curiosity for knowledge, their spiritual well-being, and their desire to give back to the community. We encourage a partnership among students, faculty, and staff that sets a high standard for academic achievement and engagement. Students speak of feeling “at home” and having the chance to participate and take on leadership roles. Whether it’s signing up for intramurals, finding volunteer opportunities through the Mercy Center, or joining a student club, campus life provides many opportunities.

Imagine spectacular views of Mount Washington from a lakeside beach. Our location, near the southern coast of Maine, is nestled in a four-season recreation area surrounded by lakes and the foothills of the White Mountains. Prime skiing, hiking, and kayaking spots are nearby, but so are the professional opportunities of Portland—Maine’s largest city. We encourage you to come see for yourself.
