Gwynedd is an academic community, but true to the Mercy legacy of Catherine McAuley, we are a strong spiritual community committed to faith based values and service to those in need, in particular, women and children. At Gwynedd, service is not mandatory – it is expected. And these expectations are always exceeded as the majority of students participate in a variety of outreach programs.
Each year Alumnae, Parents, Grandparents and Friends make the commitment to Gwynedd Mercy Academy and Mercy education. By making a gift between July 1st and June 30 th, YOU join the tradition of making Gwynedd a better place through philanthropy. The continued support helps Gwynedd stay unique and ensure that our Mercy mission of compassion and service continues to live on.
The Learning Commons is our 21st century library. Gwynedd Mercy re-envisioned our traditional library space to create a dynamic, interactive place where students can connect to information, each other and to the world. Born from our School Vision, it was intentionally designed to stimulate research study, and discovery. The Learning Commons combines learning, technology and interaction to promote an authentic, student-centered, 21st century education founded on critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creation.

Students from Honors Art Studio Three and Art Seminar classes had a wonderful time at the Rodin Museum on Friday October 7th in Philadelphia. The art students spent time on a tour with a museum educator, they studied Rodin's sculptures and sketched their favorite pieces. They also worked on a creative writing assignment. Students enjoyed lunch in the garden "Paris on the Parkway", the grounds of the Rodin Museum. They had a beautiful day and are motivated and inspired to begin their own figure drawings and sculptures! Click HERE to visit the Visual Arts page and learn more.
We are excited to announce that Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School has been named to "The Best of Montco" list for 2016 as Best Private School. Thank you to those who voted for Gwynedd earlier in the year!
We are honored to receive recognition for the efforts of our school community as we work to become better each and every day. Our Mercy community is one that thrives on collaboration and care. We could not be successful in our endeavors without students, faculty, parents, administration, alumnae, and other community members' collective support. The recognition of "Best Private School" in an area saturated with excellent school choices makes it all the more clear that Gwynedd is the place to be!
