Mount Mercy Academy
Mount Mercy Academy is a sponsored ministry of the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas and is a member of Mercy Education.
This program was established in July 2017. Mercy now belongs to an education system with 49 other Mercy education ministries, including schools in Argentina, Belize, Guam, Honduras, Jamaica, the Philippines and the United States.
The development of the Mercy Education System of the Americas has been a five year process. The foundation of the entire system is the establishment of relationships between Mercy educators in the seven countries sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy. These relationships will allow educators to share resources and their best practices as they continue to prepare their students for an accelerated culture and a truly global society. In addition, the system will ensure that Mercy educators will continue to share Mercy values and a Catholic identity well into the future.
This opportunity will allow the faculty at Mount Mercy Academy to "more proactively access-and contribute to - the wealth of knowledge, talent and resources that Mercy education has to offer."
"[We should be] as the compass that goes round its circle without stirring from its center. Our center is God, from whom all our actions should spring as from their source."
