Our PTO

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

OUR PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION

Our PTO exists to enhance and support the educational experience at DMA and to develop a closer connection between school and home. Our goal is to encourage parental involvement, aid catechesis, assist teachers and staff, and to improve the environment at Divine Mercy Academy through volunteer and financial support.

Membership to the PTO is automatically granted to all parents and guardians of Divine Mercy Academy students, all staff at Divine Mercy Academy, and all supportive community individuals. There are no membership dues and we encourage everyone who is involved in our school to take part in our PTO.

TESTIMONIALS

  • The DMA PTO helps me be more involved in my childrens' days and allows me to use my own talents and interests to add to their educational experience. Through the PTO, I've been able to meet and work with other parents and DMA teachers; it's given me a great sense of community.
