Mentoring Program

At Our Lady of Mercy Academy, our desire is to foster and strengthen student leadership. Through a mentor program, senior mentors are paired with new students to help them make a smooth transition into high school. Studies have shown that peer-to-peer mentorship can foster strong leadership and communication skills for mentors and offers academic, social and emotional support for new students.


In addition to guiding a new student, an OLMA Mentor plays an active role in the following events: 

  • Kick-Off Welcome Event
  • 9th Grade First Day of School 
  • Sisterhood Ceremony

  • Valentine’s Day Sisterhood Activity

  • Sisterhood Day Mentoring Activity

  • Extended Homeroom Sisterhood Activity (Fall/Spring)
