Many talented and motivated young women apply for admission to Our Lady of Mercy Academy.  OLMA offers both early and rolling admissions opportunities.  The 2020 OLMA Open House will take place on Sunday, October 25, from 2 PM–5 PM. Watch for additional information coming soon.


To apply to The Academy, please print, complete and return the application linked here.  In addition to the application, you will also need two letters of recommendation.  Please supply the email addresses of your math and English teachers and we will request them for you.  We will also need copies of your academic scores for grades 6-8.  You may use the form linked here to request those from your current school.  Once we receive your completed application, we will contact you to set up an interview with our Head of School.

Entrance Exam

All applicants are required to sit for OLMA’s entrance exam.  In addition to providing a current assessment of a student’s overall academic acumen, exam results will be used in part to select academic scholarship recipients, as well as to place incoming students in appropriate level courses.

Entrance Exam testing for the Class of 2025 will be held on Friday, November 6, 2020; Saturday, December 5, 2020; and Saturday, January 9, 2021.  The exam will be administered from 9 AM–11 AM on each of the three testing days.  Please complete and submit the form linked here to schedule your entrance exam.

Shadow Day

Young women in Grades 7 or 8 who are interested in experiencing OLMA’s academics, athletics, service and sisterhood programs first hand, are encouraged to shadow a current student for a day.  There are two ways to shadow — and we recommend that students do both.

The first is as part of a large group for a day of fun as part of the OLMA Sisterhood.  The date for our 2020 Group Shadow Day is Thursday, November 5 from 8:30 AM — 12:30 PM.  For a preview of what to expect, take a look at the video below.

The second way to experience life at OLMA is during a one-on-one shadow day.  These can be scheduled for any time throughout the school year.  Shadows are matched with an OLMA freshman and experience a typical day as an OLMA student.  It’s a lot of fun and our shadows are treated to lunch free of charge in the OLMA Cafe. Simply contact us and we will set it up, or CLICK HERE and we will be in touch.

Transfer Admissions

OLMA welcomes transfer students.  An applicant must be in good standing at her present school. In addition to completing the standard application process, transfer applicants must also provide a complete transcript.  If you have any questions, please contact us.
