Mercy School aims to nurture confident and committed youth, who draw upon Islamic values, cultivating leaders of righteous and noble character who contribute to the betterment of our American Society. To this end, we will cultivate personalities who upon graduation will be ambitious yet responsible, competitive yet caring, practical yet reflective, open minded yet principled, motivated yet focused and progressive yet aware.
In 1999, a few people in Oklahoma City's Muslim community got together and expressed their need for an Islamic institution for their children. They wanted someplace where their kids would be exposed to Islamic values five days a week, not just at Saturday School at their local mosque.
This group of people worked together and established Mercy School Institute in a small office building.
With only about 12 students in its first year, Mercy School Institute gradually expanded and advanced as more people in the Muslim community began sending their children and supporting this noble cause.
Around 2002, Mercy School shifted to another location nearby, a slightly larger office building. Here, a total of around 100 students attended this institution.
As the student population grew each year, the talk of a new building arose. Five acres of land was donated, plans were drawn out, and funds were steadily collected.
Finally, in 2005, construction began, and the ground breaking ceremony was held.
In 2010, the building was completed, and the first day of school that year was held in the brand new building.
Mercy School, which started out as a small office building with only 12 students, has now expanded into a beautiful, spacious, new building with a student population of over 200 students.
Alhamdulillah, Mercy School continues to expand. A new tornado shelter, additional classrooms, and additional offices are on the way, insha'Allah.
