Curriculum Overview

  • Mercy is a three-time recipient of the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award, and consistently meets the qualifying criteria with student achievement placing in the top 15th percent nationally.  We are the only school in Maryland, public or private, to have been awarded a Blue Ribbon three times.  Re-accredited by The Commission on Elementary Schools of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools in 2008, Mercy was commended for its outstanding Educational Excellence Program. We provide a rigorous academic program that engages and challenges students at all levels, while recognizing and responding to individual needs.

    Every Mercy student receives small group instruction for both math and language arts. Teachers are able to provide personalized support and enrichment, to delve deeper into the curriculum, and to make real-world connections, all of which promote student engagement, interest, and growth.
