Discover MPS, September 2020

Merrick Preparatory School’s first priority is the physical and emotional safety of our students. In response to the world-wide pandemic we have closed our Boarding Residence for Semester One (September 9, 2020 – February 2, 2021). Our campus remains open for local Day students or Boarding students who wish to Homestay in the community.
