Mercy Career and Technical School announced its new name Sept. 15 with a pep rally at the school located at 2900 West Hunting Park Avenue in Philadelphia.

The name change from Mercy Vocational High School emphasizes the Sisters of Mercy-led school’s focus on immersive, project-based education to prepare students to start a career in the workforce or continue their education after graduation. The school aims to provide contemporary job options and a non-traditional path to higher education. Also see a photo gallery here. (Video by Sarah Webb)
