Escola Preparatória Merrick inspires students to reach beyond their grasp. Naturally curious, we engage students to be inquisitive. We instill courage to face adversity, compassion to be globally minded and a sense of responsibility to be community oriented. Actively acquiring excellent academic and English language skills, our graduates are courageous, compassionate, global citizens ready to enter world ranked English-speaking universities.
Our students are always reminded of our three core values and live by them when the graduated from Merrick Prep:
Through challenge, adversity and in overcoming, our students develop self-confidence, resilience and independence; and from this the courage to venture into the unknown.
Through diversity, understanding of difference, humility and empathy, our students develop a deep sense of compassion.
Through shared experience, communal living and service, our students understand the value of intra-dependency and the importance of relationship; resulting in globally and community minded citizens.
