Hello and a warm welcome from the educators at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy in Forest Hills, New York – in the heart of Queens, the World’s Borough. The information below is to explain how we will personally assist each of you and your children through this process. OLMCA will be holding an Open House on Sunday, April 3rd from 12pm-2pm. Please call to schedule an appointment.

Though our current national situation precludes us from meeting with you in the usual Open House ways, we are committed to personally engaging with you so we can discuss the visionary educational opportunities we can offer your child. To start, we invite you to please take our VIRTUAL TOUR with our dynamic Principal, Ms. Dana McCann.

Limited private tours are available. Please call 718-793-2086 or email Ms. Hinkson at rhinkson@olmercyca.com for scheduling.

The Academy conducts safe and healthy in-person, full-day classroom learning and maintains the students-to-classroom size ratio as mandated by the New York State Department of Health. For the 2022-2023 school year, the Academy foresees this classroom size “capping” will remain in effect. To plan for each grade’s safe capacity for the 2021-2022 school year and know of your child’s interest in our Academy, we ask that you submit the inquiry form linked below.

When we receive your completed form, we will contact you to arrange a convenient time to personally discuss with you how the Academy can meet your child’s individual educational needs and challenge their abilities. We will also personally assist you with the ADMISSIONS and REGISTRATION process. Thank you for your interest in considering Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy as an educational choice for your child. We look forward to meeting with you soon!
