Merion Mercy Academy is an all girl school that offers many opportunities. My school practices and teaches the principles of the Sisters of Mercy. The school has a strong academic curriculum that supports preparatory classes for college and life. Along with the academics, the school has a strong athletic program. Within the various sports, the school is not only competitive; but has won various championships. The school possess clubs and organizations that provide extracurricular activists not only during normal school hours, but after too. Students have the ability to travel locally and internationally in volunteer programs to asssit the poor and unfortunate people Merion Mercy Academy is an overall excellent school. Girls go in not knowing each other, friendships are developed and before leaving, a sisterhood in Mercy is forged.

MMA is a school grounded in a strong mission of mercy from Catherine McAuley. This is the strongest thread in our school that holds us together. More than anything, MMA teaches the whole person, not just the mind. Furthermore, the academics have a reputation of being the best in the region for girls-education. The all-girls environment creates a culture of self-confidence, acceptance, and support. MMA has taught me how to be a better and more determined person.
My daughter loves Merion Mercy Academy! She loves her teachers and her classes and is consistently challenged. I truly feel the teachers love their job and the students they teach which is evident in their interactions with the students.
