About Gwynedd

Gwynedd Mercy Academy is an all girls Catholic college-preparatory high school steeped in Mercy tradition and service in the spirit of Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy. Our high school provides an environment which fosters academic rigor, personal growth, and service and leadership opportunities for all our students. Our school is based on the values of: compassionate presence, justice, service, and respect for the dignity of all persons.

We hold high standards and expectations, but grades are not the only measure of whether our students are learning. It's about the process and the challenge of opening the mind to new ideas and concepts. It's mastering new skills and the exciting realization of accomplishment.

What is a Gwynedd Girl?

A Gwynedd girl is a Mercy Girl! A Gwynedd girl is caring, compassionate, and well-rounded. She is intellectually curious, creative, motivated, and ready to make a difference in the world! A Gwynedd girl sets her goals high. She knows her abilities and she's confident in using them to succeed - and she'll help others succeed, too. A Gwynedd girl is smart and focused. She has an open heart and a strong moral compass - something our world needs now more than ever.

"Our name is Mercy; our spirit is compassion."

Catherine McAuley

"Draw persons to God by your words, by your example, and by the works of Mercy."
