Our Lady Of Mercy Academy

Founded in 1928 as a Catholic College preparatory school for young women, Our Lady of Mercy Academy is dedicated to providing a comprehensive education permeated with the charism of Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy.
In response to the challenge of the Gospel, the faculty and staff of our Lady of Mercy Academy work to educate students in a holistic fashion within a compassionate environment of reverence for one another and for the world.
Each student is challenged to develop her God-given gifts thus empowering the young woman to become an authentic witness of Mercy in the global community of the 21st century.
The philosophy of Our Lady of Mercy Academy is based on the Church’s threefold mission: to impart the message of Jesus, to advance the building of Christian community, and to bear witness to the Gospel message.
