Student Activities and Clubs
At Divine Mercy Catholic Academy, we believe in developing the whole person by giving our students exposure to many different types of extracurricular activities. Our school-sanctioned clubs and activities are optional, but participation is strongly encouraged. Extracurricular activities are led by teachers and highly qualified volunteer parents and others. All supervising adults have completed the necessary legal clearances.
Extracurricular activities give students opportunities to forge friendships with others who share their particular interests. Students, especially in the upper elementary and middle grades, learn to better manage their time and work as part of a team. Interacting with others in a friendly environment helps build cooperation, courtesy, charity, and respect. We have a long list of student clubs and activities that appeal to the different interests of our student body.
At DMCA Students have the opportunity to participate in:
- Challenge Math 24
- Field Trips
- Marching Band (McCort)
- Math Counts
- Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS)
- Reading Competition
- Scholastic Quiz
- Ski Club
