Why Enroll Your Child?
Our Stanford Achievement Test scores are consistently high. Our average Grade 4 test scores equaled those of Grade 8 students nationally. Fifth grade scores averaged ninth grade equivalency and average scores of sixth graders rivaled those of Grade 10 students across the nation.
Emphasis on Service
The Serviam Shield, our logo worn on student uniforms, means “I will serve.” Serving others is a component of every class curriculum. From pre-kindergarten efforts to collect canned goods for the needy, to sixth & seventh graders working at the area soup kitchen, Muskie Center, and food Bank; to eighth graders combining their years of service work into a senior project where they find a year long service project that they are passionate about. Each student is taught they can make a difference.
Disciplined, Safe Environment
Here, discipline is synonymous with respect. Children learn that behaviors which enhance themselves, also benefit others.
Mount Merici Academy also gives families reassurance by providing a secure environment. While we welcome visits by family and friends, we are mindful of safety measures, limiting outside access to ensure security. Children of Mount Merici Academy know they are loved, protected and safe.
The teaching curriculum here is complemented with enrichment opportunities including: Physical Education, Life Sports, after school athletics (3-8) such as soccer, basketball, and running club, French classes (K-8), technology instruction, arts, Big Buddy Program (K-8), Odyssey of the Mind (6-8), Writer’s Workshop (6-8), and after school Violin and piano lessons available (K-8).
Providing such enrichment opportunities helps young students learn and respect other populations and discover their individual potentials.
A school day at Mount Merici Academy begins and ends with school prayer and there is daily religious instruction. Liturgical Celebrations are held monthly. We also encourage and welcome students of all religions to openly share faith and pray together.
In choosing to enroll your children at our school, you make a commitment to be part of their learning and contributing members of the school community.
Parents of Mount Merici Academy – both past and present – can attest to the comfort and support of the family atmosphere inherently present at our school.

We also offer an eight-week summer daycare and both early morning and after school care. We take pride in supporting parents who support their children.
Proven Track Record
More than 80 percent of our students are listed on secondary and high school honor rolls. At Mount Merici Academy, there is a long and rich history of providing a quality education.
1982 MMA Graduate Deb Biche-Labbe states, “I think the biggest thing that Mount Merici Academy provided me as a student is the foundation of my personal leadership philosophy that I try to implement on a daily basis as a professional. Leading by example, giving others more than they expect to get, winning and losing with humility and grace, putting team first are all lessons that originated in the halls and playground at MMA. The teachers and administration each demonstrated these important values of Servant Leadership and helped me lay that foundation into my value system as a young child.” Deb is currently the head women’s soccer coach at Thomas College in Waterville, Maine. She has a vast resume in the world of athletics; inducted into Plymouth State Hall of Fame in 2000 for soccer and coaching from Division I to Division III.
We are proud of our students—both past and present—for who they are and will become. It is a privilege to be a part of each of their lives.
Mount Merici Academy is proud to recruit students of any race, color, ethnic origin or religion to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities.
