To know, love and serve …
Divine Mercy Catholic Academy is a consolidated Catholic school, successor to individual parish-based Catholic schools in Greater Johnstown, Pennsylvania. As such we have a rich educational tradition and a cherished place within our local community.
Our Catholic identity adds a special dimension to a Divine Mercy education.
We strive to foster and develop our students’ God-given talents, that they might know they are created in the image of a loving God. Our goal to to teach our students “to Know, Love, and Serve God and one another.”
Mercy is defined as compassion, kindness and favor toward others. We (and many other religions) believe in the divine mercy and loving goodness of God. At Divine Mercy Catholic Academy, we try to teach our students always to pray and to ask for God’s mercy and also to extend mercy to each other in daily life.
We offer the highest quality academics as well as strong arts and athletic programs. At the heart of all we teach are Christian values and the principles of our Catholic faith. We strive to give our students both knowledge and confidence, with a commitment to lifelong learning.
We also foster a spirit of giving in our students, through service to our community and our parishes. We encourage all students to get involved in service projects. Our middle school students are required to perform designated service hours as part of their Theology courses.
We welcome you to come and see what Divine Mercy Academy has to offer your child. Our academic courses include the latest technologies and newest teaching techniques. We’re proud of our on-line learning choices and hands-on science programs in every grade. Both in and out of the classroom, we provide solid academics and real-life educational experiences so our graduates are prepared for high school, college or trade school and a happy and successful life.
We encourage our families to live their Catholic faith together with their children. This partnership helps foster a love of God at home and at school. We have regular family Masses as well as faith and social events throughout the school year which our families are encouraged to attend and enjoy together.
