Welcome to Mount Merici Academy

Private School in Waterville, Maine

Mount Merici Academy is an Ursuline Catholic school encompassing nursery school through the 8th grade. Located in Waterville, Maine, we have designed our curriculum with a focus on our mission: nurturing the whole child – mind, body and spirit – providing love and guidance so that students can achieve their personal best.

In partnership with families, our goal is to instill the ever-important values of respect, responsibility and self-discipline, teaching students in the Ursuline Serviam tradition of service to our community and the world. Our curriculum is centered on basic skills of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social sciences at all grade levels. We empower students to continue to succeed once they leave our school, and become leaders who serve their families and their communities.

Mount Merici Academy offers your child the highest quality education in an environment where he or she will grow, thrive and excel.  We welcome you to come and visit Mount Merici Academy to experience for yourself the many reasons why you should enroll your child today.

We are extremely proud of Mount Merici Academy’s evolution over the past several years to include a middle school/junior high school.  Continuing in the Ursuline tradition of educating the whole child – mind, body and spirit, we have developed a uniquely enriching educational experience for our Upper Wing students.

We believe that we offer our middle school students an experience unmatched by any other available  opportunity at a most critical time in their development.  Our belief in this regard is confirmed by our current students and especially by our graduates.
