Our academic program develops critical thinkers, proficient writers, and confident leaders.
Students have an opportunity to challenge themselves within a rigorous academic curriculum. We encourage students to analyze course materials, integrate what they have learned from all subjects, and express thoughts confidently while demonstrating mastery of the discipline. Mercy equips students with the knowledge, dedication and confidence to reach their greatest potential.
At Mercy, rigor isn’t about more work or harder work - it’s about providing depth and breadth to challenge students’ thinking in new ways. Students should be participants in their own learning; through self-evaluation, they can assess what skills they can build on and what weaknesses they can strengthen.
Mercy Faculty employ research-based strategies for instruction and assessment to enhance student motivation, learning, and achievement. The ultimate goal of assessment is for students to take ownership of their learning and growth.
We are committed to the professional growth of our teachers, investing significant time, energy, and financial resources in order to stay closely connected to educational best practices. Our Faculty are challenged to continuously learn, improve, and develop innovative ways to engage students!
