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.


We are accepting sponsorships, reservations and prizes for our annual Casino Night that will take place here at Mercy on Saturday, March 12. You'll have a great time, and you could win fabulous prizes. Visit our Casino Night tab (under Development) on this Web site for more information or download this brochure to sign up.

All students of Mercy receive 2 free tickets to a special family concert put on by the Bach Choir of Bethlehem. The concert takes place Sun., Feb. 28, at Zoellner Arts Center and lasts 1 hour. To reserve your tickets, please call Karen at 610-866-4382 x. 15.

Our Annual Fund campaign is under way! Help us reach our $100,000 goal as your support will benefit our various programs, educational resources, daily operations and so much more. Click on the Annual Fund logo or visit our page in the Development tab to donate online. We appreciate your support!

Calling all Mercy artists! The Art Establishment in Fountain Hill is hosting a Special Needs Art Show March 5-22. Any artwork done by Mercy students - paintings, drawings, sculptures, etc. - is currently being accepted through Feb. 27. Artwork can be dropped off at Mercy and will be returned after the show.

Mercy was in the news for several grant awards that we received recently. Check out the news on WFMZ's Web site and the Morning Call's Web site.
