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.

I love Merion. It's a school that has a lot of weird quirks that make it so special. Weenie Roast, Advent Angels, and so many other moments make this school so special and unique. Although the academics can be stressful at times, teachers would be happy to help any student struggling. The sisterhood is definitely real and there is a sense of community among the grades. There are many things I would change about the school, though. Many of the teachers are difficult understand when they're teaching. Some policies are ridiculous and some punishments are more lenient though it should've been much worse. The administration is unreasonable. In going to Merion, you are paying for the wonderful experience you'll likely have, not much else.
I love Merion, it's second home to me and I couldn't have asked for a better high school experience. The teachers truly care about their students. The girls are all nice and I feel close with my entire class, but not so close that we get tired of each other. I feel like I have definitely been challenged and pushed to the best of my ability. The guidance and college counselors are so helpful and always there. I've learned so much more than just the basic subjects while at Merion. Merion has really taught me about the world and influenced my desire to help people and to do service.
