Our Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in Merion Mercy Academy! For more information about the admissions process, please contact the Admissions office at or 610-664-6655 x166.  

While a campus visit is not required as part of the application process, it is strongly recommended. An 8th grade visit day is the best way for your daughter to get a sense of what it will be like to be a Merion girl. On her visit, your daughter will spend the day accompanied by a current Merion student. Visit days will begin on September 20, 2024, and will run through early December.  Fall Open House is on Sunday, September 29, 2024, and is a perfect time for your family to experience all the exciting opportunities at Merion Mercy Academy.
