Strategic Plan

In the spring of 2019, Mercy McAuley began a strategic planning process that has since culminated into our 3-5 year strategic plan. This planning process will become our regular pattern every 3-5 years, as we continuously strive to innovate and lead women's Catholic education in Cincinnati for generations to come. We are grateful to our employees, students, parents and alumnae, our Strategic Planning Steering Committee, and our Board of Directors, for their tremendous engagement throughout the process which helped inform and develop our plan.
