Waldron Mercy Academy is unwaveringly committed to fulfilling its charge of service, Mercy and faith. This commitment extends beyond service projects. It is integrated into everything we do and partnerships are created that last for years.
It is a delicate but important balance for students to realize that service is not just something we do, it’s something we share. It's a true partnership. As the students mature, these experiences can challenge them and foster growth. Students come away with an understanding that service goes beyond doing. They expand to being deeply involved and are driven to embody Mercy.
Waldron Mercy students use their academic skills to think about ways to help their communities. When they grow up, their continued service may involve working at a soup kitchen, but it might also include improving the education system or working to provide better healthcare.
When we expose our students to a variety of outreach opportunities, we are inviting them to make connections between what they learn in the classroom and how they live their lives in service to others.
Program of Distinction
In May 2017, Waldron Mercy Academy achieved a Program of Distinction from the Middle States Association for our stellar Service Learning curriculum. Waldron Mercy is the first and, to date, only school to have this honor bestowed. Read more about our exciting achievement!
Join us for Community Gathering on Wednesday mornings at 8:15 a.m. Students, faculty, staff, and parents gather together in the Dixon Gym for our student-led prayer and assembly to learn about outreach opportunities and projects, recognize the accomplishments and good works of our students, listen to important school announcements, celebrate birthdays, and much more. As we gather in the mornings, you are invited to peruse the trophy cases and photos in Alumni Hall - you may spot some familiar faces!
Please mark your calendars for Wednesday mornings at 8:15 a.m. You are always welcome!
