Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School works diligently to maximize the effectiveness of daily classes, to promote even greater results in scholastic achievement and to graduate students prepared for the increasingly challenging rigors of college.
The Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School community uses a schedule that reflects a school climate that promotes 21st century learning. The school schedule allows for increased opportunities for interaction with the material introduced in class, and for the integration of hands-on, experiential projects. The cycle is ten working days, eight days of which are steady, regular classes, while the remaining two days are extended-time classes. The school day begins at 8:15 A.M.
