"We are incredibly impressed with the level of continued education being provided, during this unprecedented time. The foresight and foreword thinking of the administration is the best -- bar none! Today's young ladies are tomorrow's leading women and we are so blessed that OLMA is a part of our daughter's path and journey!"

"I'm loving online learning. With Zoom, I can actually see my teacher and classmates, so it feels like a regular class. Academically, we haven't missed a beat."

"We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you and the wonderful teachers/staff at OLMA, for such a seamless transition to online learning. From a parent’s perspective, what OLMA has done and continues to do to instill education to our girls is unbelievable. We have spoken with other parents at different schools and they are struggling with the online process. Our girls will be equipped to face any obstacle after all the craziness has settled."

Jennifer & Frank SchwartzOLMA Parents

"I can not tell you how impressed I am with how quickly the school has come together to keep our girls on track, I love that they have a schedule to stick to and work to complete in a timeframe that is reasonable but a little demanding. With all the craziness I can’t tell you how thankful I am that they feel connected and are busy enough not to sit and worry about what’s really going on. The teachers have been great and their availability is amazing. "

Mikilyn HilesOLMA Parent

"I miss seeing everyone in person every day, but the transition to online learning was flawless. I'm also using the teachers' office hours to get help when I need it. For me, it's the same as staying after class for a few minutes."

Online Learning and COVID-19 Resources and Information

Ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our top priority at Our Lady of Mercy Academy (OLMA).  The declaration of a National Emergency by the President of the United States as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated social distancing efforts by public and private entities.

To aid in this effort OLMA has transitioned to online learning.  School will be closed until April 20, 2020.  All extracurricular activities, including athletics and special events, will be suspended during this time period.  Students will not be permitted in the school facilities or on the athletic grounds.

While we are in the midst of unchartered waters, we are prepared and together will weather whatever comes our way. I appreciate your cooperation and ask you to join me in praying for everyone worldwide who has been affected by this virus. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates here, via email, and on social media.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at mrs.coyle@olmanj.org.  You may also reach out to your teachers at any time.  We are here for you and determined to See the Good during this unprecedented time in our nation’s history.

P.S. — Check out this great post titled, “This can be our finest hour — but we need all of you,” by Gretchen Schmelzer.  We got this, OLMA!
