Divine Mercy Catholic Academy, on Merritt Island, Florida has served students from the Space Coast for over 50 years. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy who guided and cared for our children, our academy has seen many changes over the past decades. As Catholic school teachers we must never forget that we are ambassadors of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Our dedication is to teaching lifelong values and to providing a quality education in a discipline, Christian environment.
DMCA is fully accredited though the Florida Catholic Conference (FCC). Excellence in education is the hallmark that has come to be associated with DMCA. A strong effort is made to achieve excellence in the following ways:
- To foster the development of Catholic principles by encouraging service to the community, respect for the environment and regard for cultural diversity.
- To foster a love of learning that leads students to view education as a life-long process.
- To instill in students a sense of self-esteem, a love of justice, and honesty.
- To create a broad-based curriculum dedicated to excellence that will challenge students to think for themselves, to become problem solvers and to develop a sense of personal satisfaction and self-worth.
DMCA is truly a community of parents, teachers, students, priests, staff and parish who work in partnership to meet all the needs of our students – spiritual, emotional, educational, physical – in a loving, supportive environment.
