The OLMA Difference 

Our Lady of Mercy Academy takes great pride in offering an exceptional educational and extra-curricular experience that prepares young women to lead a world of change. OLMA students excel as they receive every opportunity to grow and mature academically, socially, and spiritually - and to discover themselves. At OLMA, students are involved in every facet of the school. Our girls find their voices and learn to use them to better themselves and others. On graduation day, we take pride in knowing that our students are well prepared and moving on as self-aware, well-spoken, and self-confident young women.  We know that their time at OLMA - with its all-girls, faith-based, supportive environment - helped make it so.

Today, we continue to build on our strong foundation and are ableto offer our students more unique opportunities than ever beforeto grow academically, spiritually, and socially. We’re adding and upgrading the programs and tools they need to do it as well. Below are just some of these opportunities and additions.

A Philanthropic Priority

We know that the decision to enroll at OLMA is a financial commitment for our families and represents an investment in their daughter’s future. Therefore, we work to ease the tuition payment through tuition assistance and financial aid providing help to families in need. We want to ensure that a young girl seeking an education at OLMA will be assured that opportunity. To honor the many female leaders who have come before, OLMA has established The Daughters of Mercy Legacy Tuition Assistance Fund.
