    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.

    When we came to visit, we loved that Waldron would not only offer our son 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.

    We’re so thankful our children attend Waldron Mercy where they are well prepared and motivated for high school. WMA teaches respect, and we love that. We were so impressed with Waldron’s immediate pivot to virtual learning in the spring. Everything was well communicated so children understood what was expected of them and could manage their time and assignments appropriately.
