We appreciate your interest in Gwynedd-Mercy Academy and are always happy to welcome new families into our school community. The admissions process might begin when a parent requests information, completes a GMA Application to get on the list for kindergarten or when the parents of an older child visit one of our open houses.

As a K-8 school with nearly 400 students, Gwynedd-Mercy Academy fills three new kindergarten classes each year, but also accepts students in the older grades on a space available basis. Throughout the school year, we have three Experiential Open Houses scheduled to accommodate prospective families. In addition to our Open Houses, we are pleased to offer one-on-one information sessions for prospective parents or respond to any questions via email or telephone.

Are you unhappy with your child's progress at his or her current school? While the vast majority of our students traditionally begin their years at Gwynedd-Mercy Academy in September, we will consider a mid-year entry for students who are not flourishing at their current schools and meet our admissions criteria. Contact our Director of Admissions to help your child achieve success.

After the admissions screening process is completed, and a child is accepted into Gwynedd-Mercy Academy for the upcoming school year, each family is paired with a host family that will be available to answer questions, and extend the hand of Mercy hospitality.

As you consider your child's future, please feel free to contact our Admissions Director, Mrs. Bethanne Connolly, at 215-646-4916 or
