Principal's Welcome

Mrs. Eileen Boyce O'Reilly ‘03


Welcome! With a balanced vision of academic excellence, cultural wealth in the liberal arts, athletic achievement, and a strong spiritual life, Mother McAuley is a place young women grow as compassionate, responsible, and productive Christian leaders.

It is through our rigorous liberal arts and college-preparatory program, that students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, integrity and confidence they will need to meet the demands of a fast-changing world as decision makers and leaders guided by strong Mercy values.  Never are we more proud of our young women than when this mission drives their many accomplishments.

Beginning with freshmen, the bar for achieving academic success is set high, and our students rise to exceed our – and their own – expectations.  We partner with our families to create an academic and co-curricular profile that propels our students and sets the stage for their continued success in college and beyond. This curricular program develops our young women as the leaders in the classroom and in the science lab, on the stage and on the playing field.   Every captain of a team is a young woman, just like every president of a club is a young woman.  Together, we inspire our Mighty Macs to model strong leadership skills and assume leadership roles.  Throughout their four years, students mature with a strong self-confidence, encouraging one another to work harder, become assertive and ambitious, forge new opportunities, and embrace challenges. 

We are excited to have you visit our website to learn what it means to be a McAuley student, a Mighty Mac, a woman of Mercy.
