What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

In the classroom, our teachers follow an interdisciplinary approach that will allow your child to strengthen their knowledge and skills: history comes alive through STEM projects; writing is explored in science. The common thread that extends through everything we do is a commitment to meeting each student at their level.
Service learning is integrated into the curriculum and taught from the moment your child steps through our doors. Your child will learn to become an advocate for social justice while serving the sick, poor, and elderly in the Delaware Valley.

Waldron Mercy students are recognizable by their self confidence, because they have been guided and inspired to learn, to lead and to soar.

When your child graduates, they will excel in high school, higher education and the world that awaits them.

What is your mission statement?

Waldron Mercy Academy, a Catholic school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, is a diverse, faith community rooted in the gospel values of mercy and justice. We are a school where the joy of discovery inspires serious study, social responsibility, and strong faith.
