The Academy of Our Lady of Guam, rooted in the unique charism of Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, is an Archdiocesan secondary school. With a dedicated faculty and staff, the school promotes the holistic development of a diverse population of young women fostering academic excellence, responsible leadership, global awareness, social justice, and compassionate service for all in the tradition of the Catholic faith.

The Academy of Our Lady of Guam is grateful for the generous alumnae donors who continue to make it possible for some of our young women on island to receive an Academy education and be part of the growing "sisterhood". They are truly exemplary of Catherine McAuley's mission to help educate women and children. Some of the school's alumnae donors for School Year 2016-2017 recently attended the Mercy Day Liturgical Celebration held on September 22, 2016 along with some of the Sisters of Mercy, many of whom were their teachers at the Academy.
