New Parents


Dear New Parent,

Welcome to Waldron Mercy Academy! We are delighted that you and your family will be joining us in September. Below you will find some important information and required forms for you and your child to ensure a smooth transition in the Fall.

As always, I am here if you have any questions throughout the summer. We want to make sure you and your child have the best possible start to a successful school year next year.

Enjoy your summer and we will see you in September!

In Mercy,

Suzanne Gallagher,

Director of Admissions

Transportation Form

We must have information on file as to how your child/ren get to and from school regardless of whether they use the school bus, private van service, car, or if they walk to school.


Please note: Philadelphia, Springfield, and Marple-Newtown School Districts do not provide transportation for kindergarten students. No school district provides transportation for pre-kindergarten or preschool students.


If you live in the Fairmount, Old City, or South Philadelphia area and are interested in the private van as a means of transportation for your child/ren, please call the following: John and Amelia Fogarino at (215)463-5489 or (215) 480-0800

Please complete this form and submit online or return to school as soon as possible.

The forms for Lower Merion are enclosed but a copy of your pediatricians form is also acceptable. We must receive this form before the first day of school.
