The faculty and staff at Waldron Mercy are dedicated to providing a personalized approach to education. We provide resources for academic and emotional support that molded to fit a specific students needs. Our teachers work with the student and his or her family to devise a plan that best suits the individual, whatever that may be.
"The rigorous academics at Waldron developed my study habits and stamina, and it also set high standards within my life for which I continue to strive. I was pushed not only to be good, but also to be excellent. That is something I continue to cherish to this day. I was nurtured with so much love and care that Waldron will always have a warm spot in my heart."
- Paige, Class of 2012
