Our school is blessed with an active Parent Teacher Organization. We are a volunteer group consisting of parents, teachers and administrators from each of our three campuses. We work together to create a wide variety of events that benefit all of our students. We urge every DMCA parent and teacher to be as active as possible in our PTO.
PTO helps in our school lunchrooms and libraries, we organize holiday parties and educational events, and we have a special focus on conducting fundraising activities that underwrite the cost of spring field trips for every student in every grade. In past years,our PTO groups helped finance class field trips to the Pittsburgh Zoo, the Carnegie Museums and Science Center, Idlewild Park, Cresson Lake and Mountain Playhouse, Horseshoe Curve , and so much more.
There are no dues or fees to join our PTO; simply come to any meeting as your schedule allows. Please click below to review a copy of our PTO Bylaws and see minutes of past meetings.

PTO fundraising is separate from Divine Mercy Catholic Academy’s $800/family fundraising requirement which underwrites our school’s general fund. PTO monies are used to underwrite the extra events and trips we organize for our students.
These PTO fundraisers are totally optional, but much appreciated. Click below for details on upcoming PTO fundraising activities.
