Divine Mercy Academy is fully accredited by The National Council for Private Schools and the Florida Catholic Conference, a prestigious accrediting agency recognized and sanctioned by the Florida State Department of Education.
Divine Mercy is proud to be recognized Nationally as a Blue Ribbon School. The No Child Left Behind – Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private K-12 schools that are either academically superior in their states or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.
Divine Mercy Academy was selected by the Council of American Private Education as well as the Department of Education, as one of the top private schools in the nation. Among the many criteria for selection was the school’s standardized test scores ranked in the top 10% of the nation.
“In keeping with the principles of the No Child Left Behind Act,” US Secretary of Education said, “Schools chosen for the Blue Ribbon will be ones that are meeting our mission to ensure every child learns, and no child is left behind. Blue Ribbon recipients will be national models of excellence that others can learn from. We reward schools based on student achievement results, not process.”
