From the Principal

Welcome to Mercy School For Special Learning! We are excited to embark on another chapter in our school's history as we aspire to continue the work we have done for more than six decades.

The new name and new logo, as well as this new site, are all part of our strategic plan to increase the awareness of our beloved school throughout the Lehigh Valley community. We continue to take great pride in the fact that we are the Valley's only private, nonresidential school for children and young adults with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities. But there is so much more we can do, and will do, to continue making a difference in so many families' lives.

We hope you enjoy this new site as well as our new name and logo. Just like us, they will be around for a long time. And be sure to come in for a tour; we promise you an experience you will always remember.


Thanks to everyone who came out for our Celebrity Bartending Night at Taps on Route 378 on Sept. 24. We raised more than $1,300 in support our 26th annual Magical Kingdom of Mercy Gala that will take place Oct. 10. Special thanks to our celebs: Principal Bridget Muehlenkamp, Jerry Noll, Heather Kasarda, Mike Guman, Roey Ebert, Dan McPhillips, Adam Schweyer and Sue Parker.
