High School Placement

In a testament to GMA's academic excellence, traditionally nearly 100% of our graduates are accepted into prestigious private high schools. Over the last 5 years, 20% of our 8th grade graduates have been awarded academic scholarships.

The high school placement process begins in 6th grade, when Gwynedd-Mercy Academy sponsors a high school information night for our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and their parents. Admissions representatives from area private Catholic high schools make presentations and distribute application packages. In the fall of 8th grade, as the application process begins, students take a test-taking skills class and GMA staff work with families to ensure that all transcripts and letters of recommendation are submitted to prospective high schools in a timely fashion.

Pictured above are fourteen of the members of the Gwynedd-Mercy Academy Class of 2022 who were awarded a total of nineteen scholarships to area college preparatory high schools.

The Class of 2022 earned acceptance to quite a number of prestigious private high schools, including  Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School, La Salle College High School, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Notre Dame Academy de Namur, St. George's School, St. Joseph's Preparatory School and Springside Chestnut Hill Academy.  We are so proud of our graduates and look forward to learning of their future successes in high school, college, and beyond!
