About About the Campaign

“No work of charity can be more productive to the good of society than the careful education of young women.” – Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy

This campaign will address the most pressing needs facing Our Lady of Mercy Academy and lay an even stronger foundation for the future while strengthening our legacy for years to come. By expanding our endowment, making program enhancements, and institutional improvements, the plans set forth through this campaign will ensure the Academy’s competitive edge while we strive to inspire those entrusted to our care to achieve their personal, academic, artistic, and athletic goals as they grow as young women of faith, compassion, and promise.
