School Notes

  • When it comes to selecting a high school, we all want the best for our daughters -- exceptional academics, leadership opportunities, the chance to play sports, great friends, and highly qualified teachers and mentors who really care.   We look for schools that will provide them with every opportunity to shine as they grow and mature both socially and academically over the next four years of their lives.  At Our Lady of Mercy Academy (OLMA), we provide everything your daughter needs to succeed, with the added benefit of doing it in a small, faith-based, single-gender environment.  High school is a critical time for young women as they discover who they are and what they have to offer the world around them.   While here, our students learn to believe in themselves and in their ability to succeed at whatever they decide to do.  Through a challenging academic curriculum, diverse extra-curricular program and spirit of sisterhood unique to an all-girls` school, our students thrive and are forever bonded in faith and friendship.  On graduation day, we take pride in knowing that our students are well prepared and moving on as self-aware, well-spoken and self-confident young women -- ready to take on whatever comes next.  The benefits of all-girls` schools are many and documented in countless studies conducted worldwide.    The following is a video summary of research conducted for the National Coalition for Girls` Schools by UCLA`s Higher Learning Research Institute.  It tells a compelling story of why girls` school graduates have a competitive edge.  Take a look and contact us today at (856) 697-2008, to find out more about how your daughter can benefit from an OLMA education.
