Welcome to the Sisterhood

village 1 sisters

Our Lady of Mercy Academy is a sisterhood that offers unconditional acceptance in an environment that celebrates our differences and the unique gifts that God has given us.   

Students love it here  — and it shows. Daily life is vibrant and full of activity as students enjoy a level of comfort that makes trying new things easy to do.    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.

At OLMA, the bond of sisterhood begins even before you step on campus for the first day of freshman year.  Just before the new school year begins, OLMA seniors host a Big-Little Welcome Event.  While it usually involves a sleepover, the Class of 2024 was treated to an afternoon event that was just as fun.  It featured games, round table discussions, and a even a visit from Mr. Softie.  

Whether you join OLMA as a freshman or transfer in, you will be assigned a senior Big Sister.  She is your rock and is your go-to person all year long.  On the right are some photos from this year's welcome event.  Enjoy! 


The brainchild of editors, LilyAnna Lemauro and Amani Malickel, both members of the class of 2023, Sisterhood Stream is a monthly student publication.  Structured for the unique OLMA sisterhood, Sisterhood Stream embodies everything that shines about OLMA: courage, unity, mercy, and wisdom, while also giving students a place to showcase their creativity, joy, and whatever else that honors their complete being.  The editor's hope is that through the Stream, each one student finds something that is fun, enjoyable to read, and lets them know that you are not alone in this beautiful, sometimes crazy world.  Simply put, Sisterhood Stream is a celebration of all things OLMA!

OLMA Sisterhood Days

OLMA girls are as competitive as they are kind.  On Sisterhood Days, we come together as families and battle for the gold during OLMA's very own Olympic games.  Take a look at highlights from our most recent Sisterhood Olympics.

Sisterhood Ceremony -- Welcome Class of 2024

On Friday, October 30, 2020, the Classes of 2021 and 2024 came together in celebration of the Holy Eucharist and sisterhood.  The freshmen received special bracelets from their senior "Bigs" as a symbol of their official welcome into the sisterhood.   We live-streamed the Mass and ceremony so that family could share the moment.  To watch, see below.
