The academic programs available at Mount Mercy Academy are of the highest quality. The core curriculum is just the starting point. Challenging courses and classroom rigor are trademarks of our program as we strive to educate the whole student in accordance with our mission.


Block Scheduling

Block scheduling simulates that of the college environment and prepares students for the organizational and time management demands they will face after high school. The schedule also provides a collaboration period where teachers are available for one-on-one tutoring assistance and clubs/organizations can meet during the school day.

Mount Mercy's Academy of Science and Healthcare is a unique career internship program for students to gain first-hand knowledge of many different careers. Mount Mercy has teamed up with Mercy Hospital to create a vibrant learning experience for our students.

"Attending Mount Mercy Academy is one of the best decisions I could have made. Since day one they have challenged me academically, to strive and succeed. For the past two years at Mount Mercy, I received so much help from all the teachers. They are always open to help me with any questions I have. My teachers have even taken time whenever they can to help me to do well with upcoming tests and quizzes. With their help I have been on both honor rolls, and have been a scholar athlete."
