Our Lady of Mercy Academy (OLMA) students love it here — and it shows. Daily life is vibrant and full of activity.  Students describe the environment at OLMA as one  that’s comfortable, supportive, caring, and kind.  It’s a place where students can discover themselves and what they love to do.  There is no fear, only unconditional acceptance.  Throughout the school year, students participate in sisterhood days, clubs, dances, Prom, spirit weeks, travel, holiday celebrations, and more.

The OLMA Sisterhood spans generations and reaches far beyond the halls of OLMA.  Students join us as girls and leave four years later as mature, self-aware, well-spoken young women who are ready to make their mark.  No matter what they do, or where they go, OLMA graduates are forever bonded as sisters in faith and friendship.

The next time you visit, ask to see the Sisterhood Book.  Established in 2012 in honor of OLMA’s 50th Anniversary, it is signed by all OLMA sisters as part of Mary Day — a celebration held just before graduation.

Note:  Speaking of Mary Day, here’s what a few of our graduates had to say about how they were feeling that day!

Welcome to the Sisterhood!

As part of our opening mass on September, 23, we held our first official Sisterhood Ceremony.  It began with remarks from Mrs. Cavagnaro on what it means to be part of the OLMA Sisterhood.  Next, Big and Little sisters approached the altar in pairs.  Our Senior “Bigs” put an infinity bracelet on the wrists of their “Littles” and were then presented with their own by Mrs. Coyle.  It was a very touching ceremony — one that our students will always remember.  This ceremony will take place each year as new classes of Freshmen join us.  Here are some photo highlights.
