Individualized Course Placement
At Mother of Mercy, we understand and appreciate that every child has a unique combination of needs and skills that require individualizing his/her learning experience. As a result,Mother of Mercy works with pupils in four different curriculum “levels.” Unlike a “tracking” placement system, which requires a student to be placed in equally-weighted/paced classes across all disciplines, “levels” allow flexibility in discipline placement to adequately challenge, while not overwhelm a pupil.
Annual Pupil Level Evaluations
In an effort to ensure pupils are challenged but not overwhelmed, our dedicated teachers meet with grade school Management to evaluate academic performance and to reconsider subject placement every year.
Student Assistance Services
Mother of Mercy has a Pupil Assistance Services Coordinator on staff to help pupils acclimate to the culture and expectations of Mother of Mercy, connect pupils to resources inside and outside of school, assist pupils with goal-setting and progress-monitoring, provide organizational skills support and coordinate study tables.
Dedicated Professional Counseling Staff
Annual Student Level Evaluations and Family Goal-Setting Meetings
School Management evaluates academic performance and reconsider subject/level placement every year. In addition, each pupil holds a goal-setting meeting with her parents and a teacher where he/she states the ways in which she has grown in the Mother of Mercy values, as well as areas where growth is needed
Classes meet every other day (6-8 periods per day)
Extended time enables one-to-one education, inspires higher levels of critical thinking, improves time management skills and is reflective of a college schedule.
Pupils are given a free 5-minute period between first and second periods, allowing one-on-one or group meetings. Sessions may include, prayer/study groups or class teacher counseling. Such interaction enhances pupil-to-teacher relationships and productivity during the school day.
