Our Lady of Mercy offers an unparalleled academic curriculum.

Our intent is to continue to prepare our students to succeed academically in the 21st century. We offer a 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio while focusing on continuous curriculum improvement. We also are proud of our One-to-One Technology Program - each middle school student is issued her own Chromebook to use throughout the school year. High school students each have a Microsoft Surface Pro. Teachers utilize this technology on a daily basis, integrating lectures and assignments for a smooth transition of educational resources between home and the classroom.

Recently, we have infused a greater awareness of Critical Concerns of the Sisters of Mercy into the life of the school. Years ago, we have replaced the NYS Regents Program with College/Career Readiness Standards and assessments by which to measure them. Our curriculum review and enhancement is inspired by our strategic plan and led by our Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction, curriculum leaders, and teacher teams. We also ensure that our full-time BOCES expert is available to assist our students as needed and as specified in academic accommodations.

A critical component of student achievement is her teacher. We believe that intensive, targeted, and sustained professional development of teachers is essential. Our Lady of Mercy's Board of Trustees and our administrators support our faculty and teacher teams in developing their professional competencies. We have created the atmosphere of reflective practice in our school, where we use our internal structures such as department meetings, faculty meetings, full-day professional development days, and summer work sessions to create action plans to achieve growth in our academic program to benefit our students.
