Welcome to Mother of Mercy Academy,


Dear Mother of Mercy Academy Families, 

We are beyond delighted that you have chosen our Catholic school community and look forward to partnering with you in creating a family and Christ-centered environment for our students. Our goal is to help all children become lifelong learners, while also building a personal relationship with God.  With rich traditions for both academic and extracurricular excellence from our parent schools of St. Gabriel of the Sorrowful Virgin School and St. Elizabeth School, Mother of Mercy Academy offers a unique experience for students in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.

Mother of Mercy Academy boasts a comprehensive PreK- 8 curriculum, serving over 300 students, and takes pride in maintaining high academic expectations and achievements. Students from St. Gabriel and St. Elizabeth have flourished for decades, becoming some of the strongest leaders at the high school level and beyond, a tradition that will continue with our Mother of Mercy Academy graduates. Our school faculty has an impeccable reputation for preparing students to be successful in an ever-changing world both academically and spiritually. 

While becoming a member of our Catholic school community comes with a great deal of thought and prayer, our family of Catholic educators provide an experience that is second to none. Our students are blessed with some of the most talented educators in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Additionally, our faculty members are dedicated to supporting a rich academic life, fostered by a loving, nurturing environment.


As a Catholic community surrounded by faith, hope, and love, we ask that all families get involved as much as possible to help the continuation and formation of our young people. It has never been more important than now to grow our young people in their faith and relationship with God. We must all work in concert to foster a loving, supportive, and spiritual environment that will grow our children in the image of God. 


We look forward to a new beginning founded on our shared traditions in the fall!
