Mission and Philosophy
We believe that Our Lady of Mercy School provides an environment where partnerships are formed among educators, students, and parents to identify each child's talents and needs so that the individual develops to the fullest potential in an atmosphere of Catholic faith and love.
We believe that spiritual foundations are of the utmost importance in the development of the child. In learning the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church the child develops a personal relationship with Jesus Christ which serves as a guide throughout life. Through prayer the child understands that with Him all things are possible.
We believe that academic foundations are established as the child is challenged beyond basic skills to realize his fullest potential. Becoming an active participant in the acquisition of knowledge fosters the natural curiosity of the child. While preparing for the challenge of further education, the learner develops the skills of search and discovery. These skills enable each child to become a lifelong learner.
We believe that social foundations are necessary for Catholic living in modern society. The child recognizes his place as a citizen of the world and seeks to imitate Christ in service to others. Service projects afford a student the opportunity to spread the Good News of God’s Kingdom on Earth. Social justice begins with the individual and affects society as well as the global community.
These foundations are integral parts of Our Lady of Mercy School. They support our beliefs: all parents are the primary educators of their child, every teacher is a vital part of the education process, and each child is given the tools to meet the challenges of Catholic living in the 21st century.Mission Statement
