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. 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.

Financial Aid Webinars

Cick here for Financial Aid Webinars.

As college cost continues to rise and parent's schedules get busier, finding a better way to deliver important college financial information is getting harder to do.  PayForED is offering a series of college financial aid events that could help your students and parents make better college financial decisions.

These webinars will be recorded and available for a limited time after the event. It allows parents who are unable to attend to still get this information.
