Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy School, a parochial school, serving the children of Our Lady of Mercy parish and other pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students in the Baton Rouge community since 1953. As reflected in our mission statement: Our Lady of Mercy School provides Catholic foundations for a life of prayer, knowledge, and service.
The religion program is central to each aspect of the total school program. Daily religion instruction coupled with traditional devotionals and the Eucharistic liturgy develop in our children a strong, personal with Jesus Christ. A challenging academic program takes students beyond the basics to broader understandings of the knowledge base upon which future education is built. Opportunities for service enable all members of the school community to put faith into action and bring the Word of the Lord to others. These common goals foster the family atmosphere that permeates the church and school community.
We invite you, through this site, to learn more about Our Lady of Mercy School, its program and its people. The primary purpose of this site is to foster communication between the school, its families, and its students. It is also offered as a means to acquaint new friends to the special learning atmosphere that exists here.
