Welcome To Mercy
Mercy Special Learning Center provides personalized education in a supportive, Christian environment for children and
young adults with intellectual /
developmental disabilities.
We strive to educate the whole child in the areas of physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.
Mercy offers a wide variety of enrichment activities, such as In School Activities, After School Activities, and many seasonal celebrations.
Mercy currently has students enrolled from 14 school districts throughout Lehigh, Northampton and Monroe Counties in Pennsylvania.
If you are seeking an alternative educational program for your child having intellectual / development disabilities, please contact us to schedule an appointment for a tour of our school.

As part of the celebration of our 60th anniversary beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, Mercy has undergone a transformation for our original classroom wing. The classroom renovation project is expected to go for a couple years altogether in two phases, and the goal is to modernize our school and our classrooms for years to come.

We are looking for donors to join with us in supporting our classroom renovation project. For more infomation, please contact Tom Harper at 610-797-8242 or tharper@mercyspeciallearning.org.
