Our Admissions Philosophy

We seek to admit young women who possess the motivation, ability, and character that would enable them to meet the academic challenges of Merion Mercy Academy. Merion Mercy girls are compassionate, open hearted, ambitious, and eager to make a difference in the world.

While the results of the entrance exam are a major factor in our decision-making process, they are only a part of the criteria used to determine acceptance. Teacher recommendations, seventh and eighth grade marks, other standardized tests (such as the TerraNova), and the activities and interests of each student are seriously considered.

Our Non-Discrimination Policy

Merion Mercy Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sexual orientation, or ethnic or national origin in the administration of our educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and aid programs, athletics, and other school-administered programs.
