"To instruct is an easy matter, but to educate requires ingenuity, energy, and perseverance without end."


- Frances Warde, Sister of Mercy

Waldron Mercy Academy is a Mercy school associated with MESA (Mercy Education Systems of America). Being a part of this organization allows our faculty and staff to have the unique opportunity to share thoughts, lesson plans, and ways to educate our students in the Spirit of Mercy world wide. The Mercy Education System is international, spanning six countries : Argentina, Belize, Honduras, Jamaica, the Phillippines, and the United States. 

Mercy education finds its roots with Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, who opened the first House of Mercy on Baggot Street in Dublin, Ireland in the 1827. It was opened as a school for poor young girls and shortly thereafter began serving the sick and less fortunate. Mercy schools are encouraged to embrace and express the values of collaboration, compassion and service, educational excellence, world vision and responsibility, and spiritual growth and development.


During their years at Waldron Mercy, students are taught the Mercy Values* inspired by Catherine McCauley and carried out by the Sisters of Mercy.


Focusing on Social Justice, Mercy schools also educate students on the critical concerns chosen by the Sisters of Mercy. Students address these concerns through prayer, attention to personal, communal and institutional choices; education; advocacy with legislators and other government leaders; and corporate engagement.
