Welcome! Since 1846, when the first Sisters of Mercy arrived in Chicago, Mother McAuley has been a pioneer in the Catholic education of young women from across the Chicago area. Our story is one of academic distinction, leadership and service to the community.
Grounded in our Catholic faith, Mother McAuley is committed to the academic, emotional and spiritual development of young women of Mercy. Our pursuit of an exceptional experience for our students is reflected in the strength of our gifted faculty, countless spiritual development opportunities, emphasis on rigorous, student-centered learning, our growing academic opportunities, and expanding technology initiatives.
Our young women become part of our community and our family. We are dedicated to our mission of preparing them with the skills, integrity and confidence they will need to address that many challenges that await them beyond the classroom, and the demands of a constantly changing global society. This is the McAuley lifetime advantage.
We encourage you to visit our campus and feel the excitement and energy that fills each room and hallway. You will leave awed and inspired by the commitment of our faculty and staff to the academic and spiritual achievement of each and every young woman.
Mrs. Mary Acker Klingenberger ‘75
