Divine Mercy Catholic Academy honors a long and distinguished athletic tradition begun decades ago in the various Catholic grade school sport leagues of Greater Johnstown.
We believe our students learn a great deal about themselves through participation in school athletics. Concepts of teamwork, selflessness, striving toward a common goal, and perseverance even in the face of defeat, are invaluable lessons that our graduates carry with them for the rest of their lives.
We are proud of our Divine Mercy Catholic Academy Athletic teams:

Athletics is an extension of the classroom, and our coaches serve as teachers on the athletic fields. They are experienced, knowledgeable volunteers who love to coach. All have completed the necessary legal clearances. Our coaches strive to prepare the student athletes on their teams for the difficulties and hardships they will face in a competitive season.They spend extra time and go the extra mile so that our students feel confident in their abilities and learn not only how to play, but how to represent themselves and their school appropriately.
