From Walsingham Academy

Since 1947 Walsingham Academy has offered families a better educational option. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy and grounded in the values of compassion and service, Walsingham students receive more than a high-powered education. They learn that everyone is worthwhile. That there is great joy in helping others. And that the real power of a prestigious education is what you do with it.

From our Early Learners program to 12th grade, Walsingham students experience an education that connects through thought and action. It is both contemplative and communal. Because true learning happens when you combine expert, active instruction with mindful, individual reflection.

The beauty of the Walsingham community lies in the opportunities for students to engage outside of the classroom, including dozens of clubs, athletics for students in grades 5-12 and visual arts education for all students.

    We love Walsingham! Our daughter started there last year and has flourished. They have small class sizes, students are challenged, and they help developed the kids holistically versus just academically.
    Walsingham has a great community. Everyone cares about everyone. Your teachers care about you and want you to succeed. The classes are amazing with top notch lessons. There are many programs available along with clubs. Sports are a big thing here around 90% of students do a sport. At Walsingham, they teach you Mercy core values with every student lives by. This just makes the community nice to be a part of. The people here are some of the nicest in the world.
