Divine Mercy prides itself on bringing out the endless possibilities for growth in their students: to learn more, to grow as a disciple of Jesus, and to be challenged to become the person God intended. Through rigorous academics and dedicated faith formation, students are prepared for further education and for life.
In alignment with the Wisconsin Department of Instruction standards, the curriculum follows the Archdiocese of Milwaukee guidelines and new Seton Catholic Schools enhancements. A variety of materials — textbooks, journals, technology, manipulative — deliver instruction that is engaging, child-centered and personalized for student growth.
Faith plays an integral role in the daily life of Divine Mercy students and staff. Religion is instructed as a class every day, and teachers bring the faith alive in other curricular areas. Students not only understand the foundation of their faith, but are challenged to see the world through a Catholic lens.
The focus in 2016 is on the Year of Mercy: loving others with heart and hands. The school community starts the day off with a common prayer led by students. To celebrate the Year of Mercy, students attend Adoration on Fridays in the newly built chapel with their class and parish members.
Divine Mercy offers many opportunities for young students to learn and grow in a safe, supervised environment. Children age 2 through school age are eligible for preschool in the Divine Mercy Early Childhood Education Center. It’s a fun environment for little learners to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically.
Divine Mercy also accommodates busy, working parents with daycare for young children, and before and after school care for school-age students. Students enjoy fun activities while interacting with their peers.
Divine Mercy students are innovators of the future. Many students enjoy participating in the Future City Competition.
The Future City Competition is an opportunity for students to design and build a future city that solves a sustainability issue in a community. Through this competition, middle school students practice problem-solving skills in math, science, and engineering.
