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
Valentine’s Day Sisterhood Activity
Sisterhood Day Mentoring Activity
Extended Homeroom Sisterhood Activity (Fall/Spring)
