Divine Mercy Catholic School – A community grounded in faith dedicated to the development of the whole child: mind, body, and soul.

PHILOSOPHY

“Christ is the foundation of the whole education enterprise in a Catholic School.”
(The Catholic School #34)

In a faith filled atmosphere, the message of Christ takes priority and becomes integral in all areas of school activities. Our school emphasizes academic areas and provides a strong Catholic foundation for a child to continue his/her Christian life in society.
