Parent Perspectives

Our parents are vital to the Waldron Mercy community. They trust our faculty and staff to educate their children during the most formative years. Learn why they chose a Waldron Mercy education below. 


Our recent alumni also offer valuable insight on how Waldron Mercy shaped them into the people they are today.  Read their thoughts here. 


The Elie Family

Nicole and Yakeema, Bryce ’22, and Nia ’18

Waldron Mercy Academy has been all that we expected and so much more. Nia was, and Byrce still is, surrounded daily by people who truly do care about her academically and emotionally. As a family that commutes every day from New Jersey, this makes us feel good as parents that we are providing the best experience possible for our children.


The Short Family

Jill and Adam, Ainsley ’24 and Marlowe ’25

When we first enrolled in WMA, we felt an immediate connection with the faculty and teachers who helped our family with the transition to a new school where we did not know anyone.  That connection has carried through all the years and we have found the faculty and administration create a very supportive environment for our girls.


The Drummond Family

Kasel and Ernest, Cameron ’27 and Myles

When we came to visit, we loved that Waldron would not only offer ourson a great education but also give him exposure to the Catholic faith, which was important to us. We love that Cameron is being taught in the spirit of Mercy. Seeing him grow into a compassionate young man is equally important as the fundamentals of reading and math that he's learned.


The Oates Family

Patrick and  Evelyn, Andrea-Rose '18, and John-Patrick '22

Waldron Mercy Academy has been a part of our history for the last four decades. The school and the surrounding community has been a blessing in the lives of our children. The teachers are compassionate about children and passionate about teaching. The students are kind and open to new friendships, and the entire staff embraces both children and parents. What we like best as parents is the diversity and the Mercy values. I applaud the new and innovative curriculum coupled with the state-of-the art equipment that will only result in outstanding achievements for our children. Thank you, Waldron Mercy Academy, for providing a quality education, a safe and trusting environment and an enjoyable experience for the Oates Family. Our kids are much better people because they are receiving a Waldron Mercy education.


The Avitabile Family

Mark and Kate, Charlie ’26, Emily ’29, and Teddy ’31

We chose WMA due to the kind, articulate, confident eighth graders who gave us a tour and made us think, that is exactly how we want our kids to be. We also love the Mercy charism, the teachers who are like family, the school’s diversity, the focus on social justice, and the amazing art and music programs that encourage creativity in our children.


The McDonald Family

Roman and Elana, Roman Jr. ’18, and Ryan ’21

We joined the Waldron Mercy Academy family when our sons, Roman and Ryan, were entering first grade and preschool. Waldron has challenged our sons academically, while fostering the same core values we instill in them at home. The school also provides great sports, music, and art opportunities. We love the sense of community that is ever present at Waldron. The parents are always welcome to participate in a multitude of activities. We look forward to continued growth academically, personally, and socially at Waldron Mercy Academy.


The Wiegand Family

Chris and Christine, Mason '21 and Emerson ’24

We couldn’t be more pleased to have chosen Waldron for our two children. It is a superb environment for a young person to learn and mature, to develop a respect and compassion for others, and to be constantly encouraged to discover. There is an overwhelming feeling of community at Waldron and we are grateful to have become members of it.
