About Our School

Mercy School For Special Learning provides all children and young adults with special needs the best opportunity to reach their utmost potential, both academically and in life, which is an expression and extension of the Catholic Church’s mission to promote the Gospel and sanctity of human life.

We promise to love, respect and treasure each unique individual; use academics, activities and community engagement to build life skills and confidence; and provide a safe, nurturing and spiritual environment.

Children with typical needs who will turn 6 graduate from our Pre-K program and move on to their school of choice. Students with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities, however, will continue on in our School-Age program.

Our comprehensive Pre-K program offers children an integrated setting to develop skills of readiness in early academics (ABCs & 123s), self-help and social interaction. These youngsters thrive daily in our nurturing environment as well as learn healthy attitudes of acceptance and the development of friendships.

The School-Age program follows a typical school year calendar, and all students are grouped by age and ability instead of grade levels. Each student receives an Instructional Plan that establishes goals and objectives for the school year; this plan is created with input from the students’ parents, the classroom teacher and the principal.

Our School-Age program focuses on helping students reach their fullest potential through development in all areas of growth and, in particular, self-confidence.
