It was June 4, 1961, when Rev. Fr. Vito Sorrenti, OSJ, founded the Our Lady Mercy High School, named after the patroness of Taysan, Nuestra Señora de la Merced.

It stared with only 40 students at the vacant room of the parish convent. In the following years, students increased in population having its first commencement exercises in 1965. The growth and success were rewarded when on July 1, 1968, it was given the Government Recognition.

With the remarkable increase of the student population, Rev. Fr. Guido Coletti , OSJ, decided to purchase some hectares of land at BRgy. Mahanadiong, where the present school building is located.
