College Tours

When it comes to deciding which college or university is right for you or your daughter, it’s all about fit.  Colleges, like high schools, come in all shapes and sizes.  They are large, medium and small; public and private; single gender and co-educational; in urban and rural settings — or even overseas.   They have different cultures, academic offerings, sports and clubs.  And, of course, they come with all sorts of price tags and scholarship opportunities.

At Our Lady of Mercy Academy (OLMA), we believe that the best way to get a feel for fit is by taking to the highway on college tours.  Just recently, 23 students toured 9 colleges and universities in three states over the course of two days.  We offer a number of different college tour opportunities throughout the year.  We hope you will join us.

College Fairs

College fairs are held throughout the year.  OLMA will keep you updated on the ones located in the tri-state area.
