Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School Alumnae Mentors are committed alumnae who work in collaboration with the school to help prepare students for college and their careers through mentorship.

The Program is designed to:

  1. Give senior students an opportunity to seek advice from alumnae as they embark on the college application process, choosing a college and major, and their future careers.
  2. Allow alumnae to share their experiences and feedback to guide students as they prepare for college and their future careers.
  3. Promote Lifelong Sisterhood by creating bonds between alumnae and current students.
