The WMA Difference

Headshot 4.jpg

Welcome to Waldron Mercy Academy, a preschool through eighth grade school deeply rooted in the charism of Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy. Waldron Mercy Academy has been recognized three times by the U.S. Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School, and was also the first recipient of the Service Learning Program of Distinction award from the Middle States Association.
 

I am delighted and truly humbled to join the Waldron Mercy Academy community this year as Principal, and want to express my sincere gratitude for the warm welcome I have received.  From the moment I entered the campus, I could sense the strong sense of community and deep commitment to Mercy in Action

 

As Principal, my goal is to continue building upon the rich traditions and values that have made Waldron Mercy Academy a pillar of academic excellence for the past 100 years.  I am also committed to fostering strong relationships with all members of the WMA community, as we believe that education is a collaborative effort between school and home. As we embark on this new academic year, I am confident that with the support and partnership of our dedicated faculty, staff, families, and extended community members, we will continue to provide an exceptional educational experience for our students.

 

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about the incredible opportunities that await your child at Waldron Mercy Academy and to hear firsthand accounts from our alumni and families about the Waldron Mercy Academy difference.  We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
