Sister Susan Walsh

Assistant Principal, Mercy Career & Technical High School
Archdiocese of Philadelphia
2016 Neubauer Fellow

“I have served as a Principal and Assistant Principal in both elementary and secondary education for many years. I am committed to this type of educational service because I believe in the God-given potential of students. I want to lead and join my colleagues in the development of our students’ potential. This wonderful opportunity of being a Neubauer Fellow affords me the chance to learn from and contribute to the leadership of other city administrators, who endeavor to provide the same quality education. These gifted students deserve our very best efforts.”

Sister Susan served as the principal of Mercy Career and Technical High School since 2007, before becoming Assistant Principal in 2018 in order to transition new leadership.


Sister Susan has been an educator since 1974. Prior to becoming a high school principal, Sister Susan served as elementary school principal, assistant principal, middle and high school science/math teacher, and private school board member. In 2018, Sister Susan was inducted into the Hall of Fame for Education at her alma mater, Archbishop Wood High School. Sister Susan grew up in Willow Grove, and graduated from Archbishop Wood High School (Class of 1970!).
