"Words can not describe how grateful I am for my time at Merion. From the forever friends I've made to the teachers who have walked with me every step of the way, I wouldn't have spent my past four years anywhere else. Looking into what the next couple years hold for me, I know that my time at Merion has prepared me for whatever life throws my way."

—Ashley Ciampitti '23, Drexel Hill, Pa.
