    Our Lady of Mercy Academy Reviews

    All Categories
    Our Lady of Mercy Academy is a small all girl high school in southern New Jersey that fosters a community of sisterhood while delivering a first class education. Small class size and emphasis on academics was what made my parents fall in love with OLMA. I took a little more convincing, but after attending a shadow day and meeting students, teachers and administrators I quickly felt like I was home. This inclusive and friendly environment has inspired me to excel not only in academics, but in sports, clubs, and volunteerism. I am proud to a part of the OLMA community and am delighted in the many ways it has helped shape my future as I look forward to studying pre-med in college.

    I entered Our Lady of Mercy Academy in September of my Junior year. Although I have only attended this school for one year, I love it. It is easy to adapt in this school. The education prepares students for college, the teachers are all amazing, and the food is delicious. I would recommend this school for any female that wants an amazing high school experience and an education that prepares them for college.
    Our Lady of Mercy was a great school to really feel comfortable with your teachers and to not be afraid to ask questions. The only thing that lacked at most times was the education and athletics. Although most of my teachers were more than willing to help me succeed, OLMA is a very small school. Therefore, the educational opportunities and diversity was minimal. On the bright side, OLMA does offer a sense of sisterhood and the teachers, especially Mrs. Cavagnero, treat their students as their own children.
