This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Students ages three to grade 8 experience the joy of learning at Waldron Mercy Academy, a diverse, Catholic, co-ed school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy. Our innovative service learning curriculum creates well-rounded, independent learners who are prepared to make a difference in their communities in high school and beyond.

Awards or Certifications:

Waldron Mercy Academy was named a 2020 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. It is the third time that the school received this honor. Waldron Mercy is accredited by the Middle States Association Commission on Elementary and Secondary Schools. In 2017, it became the first and only of the 2700 MSA-CESS schools to be honored with the Service Learning Program of Distinction.

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.
