“It was at GMA where I developed my voice, determination, and confidence to believe in myself and my work. I credit the friendships I made, some of the amazing teachers I had who let me push boundaries and explore opportunities (shoutout to Mrs. Hohenstein) and the chance to see the world through travel.”

“I have always tremendously valued my Gwynedd Mercy Academy education and felt it gave me an incredibly strong foundation to build my career. At Gwynedd, we were taught to always strive to be our best selves and encouraged to follow our passions in the context of compassion and mercy. I am grateful to my parents for recognizing the special educational experience that GMA would provide.”

“I consider my Gwynedd Mercy education the greatest gift my parents could have ever given to me. While at GMAHS, my love of music, theater, and tennis lead me to Glee Club, Chorale, performing in the musicals and plays, and playing on the tennis team. The Sisters of Mercy and teachers instilled a love of God and a passion for helping those in need, and I made loyal friendships during which continue to this day. To be able to send my daughters to this school and continue in the Legacy of Mercy is one of my life’s greatest gifts. I have no doubt the education, inspiration, love of God, and empowerment they receive at Gwynedd will continue for generations to come.”
