Classroom Learning

At Waldron Mercy Academy, our interdisciplinary approach allows our students to strengthen their knowledge and skills across all subjects, from writing in history and science, to technology in service and religious education.

Our Lower School begins as early as age 2 1⁄2 with early instruction in Early Child Care (ECC), followed by Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, or in the Montessori track, and extends through third grade, when our students enter Middle School for grades four through eight. The common thread that extends through everything we do is a strong trust in children and a commitment to meeting each student at their level.

Our flexible and gifted teachers are committed to directed learning, with differentiation that allows for a deeper dive and subject acceleration among our most gifted learners; and extra support and guidance for students whose learning styles and abilities can benefit from the expanded personal involvement.

Children learn by example and each student is paired with a big buddy, providing a friend, a mentor and a glimpse into their future.

Service and outreach begins early as we cultivate a sense of mindfulness and awareness that we have a role to play in this world and each one of us, no matter how young, has much to contribute and can and will make a difference.

Our specialized and individualized curriculum, where needed, is just one of the many steps we take to educate the whole child and make sure each student is prepared for what comes next. Our students are recognizable by their confidence in themselves, because they have been guided and encouraged to learn, to lead and to soar.

By Middle School, Waldron Mercy students are expanding their minds and their independence. In a K-8 school environment, Middle School students have the opportunity to be the class leaders and seniors and grow both in confidence and in service. Service is both engrained and empowered at this point in their education and growth, with almost all students actively seeking community involvement.

Parent involvement is encouraged and the WMA community is a close-knit one, working side by side on projects. A mutual respect between teachers and students provide open access for students to seek out counsel and also work to develop extracurricular activities that build on skills and interests.

When they graduate, every student is Waldron Ready and excels in high school, higher education and in the world that awaits them.
