Mount St. Mary Academy
Faith & Service

Reason for Faith Formation and Service

Centered in Catholic tradition, Mount St. Mary has a rich heritage of Mercy education that dates back to 1851.  In the spirit of Catherine McAuley, the founder of Mercy education, we encourage young women of all faiths to deepen their understanding of God and self, and to further develop a personal relationship with God, during their time at the Mount.  Our Catholic foundation and traditions of service and mercy promote faith formation and inspire young women to make a difference in their community and the world.
