Inspiring excellence - educating the mind body, and soul - a classical education in the Catholic tradition.

CLASSICAL EDUCATION IN THE CATHOLIC TRADITION

EDUCATING THE WHOLE PERSON

The best education a child can receive is a Catholic education. Acknowledging that parents are their child's first educators in character, faith, and academic formation, Divine Mercy Academy collaborates with parents, seeking to complement their efforts and take the lead where appropriate, most particularly in the area of academics. The cooperation of the family, the school, and the local parishes, allows our community to work as one to the benefit of our students.

Divine Mercy Academy's instruction draws upon the wisdom of a classical approach, which systematically reflects the development of the human mind and acknowledges the critical role of virtue development in a person's education.

CURRICULUM

Academic excellence and individual attention are key at Divine Mercy Academy. Our Classical curriculum encompasses all essential areas of education and reflects a Catholic worldview. We teach our children to be active learners by engaging their minds and focusing on developmental levels and strengths. Small class sizes allow teachers to better know their students and tailor their teaching method to each child's learning style. Students receive instruction in religion, history, chant choir, art, science, math, physical education, language, and composition. Additionally, our once weekly enrichment activities expand these studies and add "hands-on" learning opportunities.

FORMATION & ENVIRONMENT

Our faith is the foundation of all we do at Divine Mercy Academy. Students, faculty, and families join in prayer each day, focusing our minds and hearts on God's will. In collaboration with families, our teachers nurture individuals of faith and virtue - independent thinkers who live life and their faith to the fullest - both in and out of the classroom. Our children thrive in a safe environment of loving authority; they truly enjoy being in their classes. Our teachers work diligently every day to bring to reality the vision of DMA as an institution of excellence in academics, prayer, faithfulness to Catholic teaching, and development of young men and women as courageous Disciples of Christ.

CATHOLIC EDUCATION

  • The aim of all Christian education, moreover, is to train the believer in an adult faith that can make him a "new creation," capable of bearing witness in his surroundings to the Christian hope that inspires him.

    Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
  • The greatest challenge to Catholic education in the United States today...is to restore to that culture the conviction that human beings can grasp the truth of things, and in grasping that truth can know their duties to God, to themselves and their neighbors.

    Pope St. John Paul II
  • [Classical] Christian Education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue by nourishing the soul on truth, goodness, and beauty by means of the seven liberal arts and the four sciences so that, in Christ, the student is enabled to better know, glorify, and enjoy God.
