Daily Schedule

At Mercersburg, students thrive as they learn within a variety of contexts. We break each day into many parts: academics, meals, community events, adviser meetings, help sessions, athletics and arts practices/games/performances, group activities, study time, residential time, and free time.

Our rotating schedule also ensures that each day is a fresh experience. According to this schedule, each student rotates through seven periods – but only six of those periods meet on any given day. The periods rotate from day to day and week to week.
