About Us

In January 2017, Our Lady of Mercy School celebrated its 55th year as a Catholic elementary school in the Hicksville area.  We currently serve students from Nursery through eighth grade from our own parish as well as students from 23 other districts in outlying areas who accept the mission, policies, and teachings of Our Lady of Mercy School. 

Our Lady of Mercy is a school where academic excellence is encouraged and accomplished.  Students leaving Our Lady of Mercy School have gone to the high school of their choice where they have made an easy transition and have excelled academically, socially, and spiritually.

The administration, faculty, support staff, and parents of our school are committed to creating a learning environment where all children are challenged to not only attain their personal goals but are encouraged to exceed them. Our Lady of Mercy is proud of our tenured and certified faculty members, most holding graduate degrees in the field of education.  Our faculty and devoted staff demonstrate a loyalty to our students and parish community with some members having  10, 15, 25 years or more of service to Catholic education.   This consistency provides a stable and secure environment.  Over the years, past graduates have accepted teaching positions here at Our Lady of Mercy School.

The students of Our Lady of Mercy are involved in a wide range of activities both during and after school. Some of these activities are Glee Club, Band, Science Club, Young Author's Club, Safety Squad, Student Government, CYO sports programs, Scouting, and various community service projects.  In addition, a Before and After-care program has been established to assist working parents in their need to find a safe and loving environment for their children.

Our school places a high priority on keeping up to date with the latest technology for both teachers and students.  In addition to a Computer Lab, classrooms are equipped with SMART Boards; laptops and iPads are available for classroom use.  We also have a Library, Art Room, Resource Room, Main Office, Health Office, Physical Education Office and a large gymnasium.

Our Lady of Mercy School is a Christ-centered, family-oriented community that encourages each of our students to practice the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, to believe in oneself, and to strive for peace and justice in daily life.

Faith, Academics, and Knowledge are the focal points of programs.  We are committed to supporting the individuality of each child.  Each one is encouraged to develop his/her creativity, critical thinking and leadership skills.
