If you thought you knew the story of "The Princess and The Pea," you may be in for a walloping surprise! Do you know, for instance, what Princess Winifred did to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab for their first meeting? Or what Lady Larken's compelling reason for reaching the bridal altar post haste? Or what actually caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at this fairy tale quite the same way again.

Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School will offer 9 different camps during Summer 2015 for girls and boys entering grades 3-12 as of Fall 2015 including Basketball, Volleyball, Lacrosse, Tennis, Drawing, Painting, & Ceramics, Strings Fest, Musical Theater, and Camp Ophelia, a leadership camp for young girls. Private music lessons are also available through the summer.
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.
Giving is a Mercy tradition. For over 150 years, a countless number of alumnae, friends and parents have made substantial contributions to our mission of educating young women. We invite you to join this long and distinguished line of benefactors by exploring options for donations, special gifts and legacies.
