Introduction to the GMA Primary Wing
Each year, Gwynedd-Mercy Academy brings many new families into our school community as we fill our kindergarten classrooms with enthusiastic young learners. Our experienced, highly committed kindergarten teachers are assisted in the classroom by full-time kindergarten aides.
In order to implement the safest standards of social distancing in our kindergarten classrooms, space is extremely limited. To reserve your space in the Kindergarten application process please click here to submit an application.
