College Counseling

Click Here to Meet the Staff.

At Merion Mercy Academy, each junior and senior student meets individually and in groups with her college counselor to plan for her post-MMA education. The College Counseling office offers an open-door policy and a wide variety of print and electronic resources to assist both students and parents in navigating the college process. Our primary goal is to ensure that all MMA students receive ongoing support as they search for and apply to colleges that match their individual interests and abilities.
