DMA Virtual Open House
Welcome to the DMA Virtual Open House! This year has been strange, to say the least. Parents are nervous about sending their child to class and we want to put those nerves at ease. So take a look around our school - we hope you can feel comfortable with the precautions we have put in place!
Pandemic Preparedness Plan
The Coronavirus pandemic has made us realize that certainty is a luxury so we have created an in-depth strategy in the case of a flu pandemic. From our perspective, we have learned that plans can never be too comprehensive. And with the inevitability of uncertainty, there’s all the more reason for more planning. Download PDF >>>
Blog Post: DMA Neurocognitive Training: Case Study
For this week, we're going to be picking up from where we left off in our last post and dive deeper into neurocognitive science with a case study conducted by our own psychologist, Todd Nadeau.
Divine Mercy Academy is a center of excellence for children who are best served when taught using a non-traditional teaching approach. By using an innovative and integrative approach to teaching and learning, we will help our students enhance their capacity to learn. This will be achieved through a spiritually rich environment so they can acquire the skills and confidence to succeed in life with a clear foundation that is rooted in their faith.
"Divine Mercy Academy has been an amazing program for our first grade son. He was in a public school for a short time in kindergarten, and we didn’t believe the large class setting was best for him. He struggles with attention, processing and reading and he needed additional help. We were so blessed to find DMA. The small class sizes and extra attention have been so great for our son. We have seen tremendous growth, both academically and socially. Each of the educators is experienced, caring, and kind. We know with absolute certainty that they have our son’s best interests at heart. We would highly recommend DMA for anyone that feels their child is falling between the cracks in a typical larger classroom setting."
"I would like to take this opportunity to express how much we love DMA and the great work they have done for my son. They have developed a curriculum specially suited to my sons needs and modify the plan based on his progress. The teacher/staff have been wonderful and we believe they have my sons best interest in mind at all times. I would recommend the DMA to anyone looking for a great school with a highly desired teacher to student ratio and an environment designed for students requiring additional attention they will unfortunately not receive in the public school system."
“Our fist year with DMA has been wonderful. We found DMA when we found out our school district was going to be fully virtual. We took a tour about a week before the start of the school year and were very happy with the staff and educators that we met. We felt more at ease and hopeful when we learned that the board had crossover with Catholic Central. My husband being a CC alumni especially found this to be a strong selling point. Our child has grown so much both academically and socially while attending DMA. There are so many wonderful teachers and staff all of which are kind, patient and nurturing to each child's individual needs . The classroom ratios are excellent and the well rounded curriculum have really nurtured our child 's love of school and learning.”
Divine Mercy Academy was created to meet the unique learning needs of students who struggle with the challenges of core curriculum.
