Waldron Mercy Academy has a strong academics based program that has helped our children develop socially, emotionally, and academically. We have three children, all with very different personalities, currently enrolled and all of them are thriving. The teachers are supportive and foster a lifelong love of learning. One of the things we love most about WMA is their commitment to service learning. The students have so many opportunities to participate in hands-on outreach programs that touch the lives of those in need. There is also a strong sense of community and many opportunities for involvement. Our children have loved the variety of sports, clubs, and extracurriculars that Waldron offers. We are so happy to have joined Waldron Mercy Academy and know our children are getting a wonderful education while creating lasting relationships with classmates, teachers, and staff.
