Welcome to Waldron Mercy Academy where we understand that how students learn sets the stage for who they will become as leaders, scholars and compassionate contributors to society. We offer an innovative curriculum integrating academics, technology, arts, athletics, and service, in a faith-based environment. We celebrate academic progress and encourage students to develop the confidence necessary to assume responsible membership and leadership in the global community. You can recognize Waldron Mercy students immediately because they are confident, capable and committed to the world around them. They shine.

​We are proud to welcome ambitious boys and girls from more than 60 communities to our 35-acre campus, serving more than 18 school districts throughout the region. Since our founding in 1923 (co-educational since 1987), Waldron Mercy has continued the mission of Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy and instills in students the drive to address the needs of others through acts of service, not merely from charity but from a true sense of social justice.

At Waldron Mercy Academy, every teacher is committed to developing the specific needs of every student and preparing them to lead, succeed and contribute to the world around them. Waldron Mercy is the top school in the region that balances this commitment to Mercy and service with an award-winning student-centered education that is nationally recognized for excellence.
