A Mount Mercy Academy education has long been synonymous with academic excellence. 

For generations, our students have developed the skills to work hard and thrive under our rigorous college preparatory curriculum that includes honors, advanced placement and college-level courses.  
While these high standards for academic excellence remain, our approach is widening as we have shifted to Project-Based Learning.

Research shows Project-Based Learning is a new and innovative teaching method where students gain knowledge and problem solving skills by working to investigate and respond to authentic, engaging, and complex questions and challenges.

Social Emotional

Our focus is to help to shape our students to become well-rounded individuals with the confidence and skills to overcome the many obstacles by giving them the tools to overcome these challenges.  

We have structured our schedule to dedicate time within the school day to focus on social interactions with others by using a restorative approach that teaches effective communication skills and highlights the importance of expressing ourselves in a positive and productive manner.  

Groups are facilitated in order to address concerns relevant to a variety of topics based on needs in order to create a school culture of kindness and compassion.
