Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Regional Catholic School

Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Regional Catholic School

Our Lady of Mercy Regional Catholic School (OLM) was established by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia in 2012. OLM is a joint ministry of Saint Alphonsus Parish in Maple Glen, Saint Anthony of Padua in Ambler, Saint Catherine of Siena in Horsham, and is located on the campus of Saint Alphonsus Parish. OLM's student population is a unique composite of small communities and reaches across ten school districts. This diversity serves to enrich the culture of the school and helps to advance its mission. In its short history, OLM has mushroomed into an expansive academic complex, complete with state of the art science lab, Next Generation STEM curriculum, library, extended care program, computer lab, a 1:1 iPad program, and dedicated rooms of instruction for music, art, and Spanish. The students have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive PE/Health program in a spacious, fully-equipped facility.

OLM's vision is to continue to provide the highest quality Catholic education to students with an unwavering commitment to its Mission Statement. That Mission Statement is based on the belief that the Eucharist is in the center of the school community. The profile of graduates is a testimony to the goals established for their students. The goals challenge the students to demonstrate faith, knowledge, leadership, and service, and continue to do so in their academic life in high school, college, and beyond. The whole program at OLM rigorously prepares students to be life-long learners, Catholic leaders, and contributing members of the global community.
