We Set the Standards for Excellence.

We set the standards for excellence and provide a place where children can learn in an atmosphere of Christian values, fellowship and scholarship.  Our mission:  to challenge each student to achieve academic excellence in  a nurturing, Catholic faith-based environment.

Our Lady of Mercy Academy is a Pre-school through Grade 5 Catholic School located in Whippany, NJ.


Our philosophy stresses the dignity and worth of each child and flows from example and teachings of Christ.  Each child is treated with respect. At the same time, one of our top priorities is that children be taught to respect others. Our Lady of Mercy Academy adheres to the curriculum required by the State of New Jersey and the Diocese of Paterson. Our goal is to serve the needs of each child spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially.

We consider all children to be gifted and our challenge, as educators, is to develop these talents, as well as the child’s own self image.  This can be best accomplished in a supportive Christian environment.
