Classical liberal arts education is the fullest form of how the Catholic Church understands formation. This educational model assumes a higher purpose and a deeper meaning to life. It is faith seeking understanding. The goal of a liberal arts education is liberty – freeing the mind so that it can understand God and the world He created in order that we may serve Him better. Rather than subjects being understood as separate, they are all understood as facets of the Human Experience. The result of this method is a love of God, a love of learning, and a love of school. In one word, students are happy!
"The primary purpose of a liberal education, then, is the cultivation of the person’s own intellect and imagination, for the person’s own sake . . . Formal schooling actually commenced as an endeavor to acquaint the rising generation with religious knowledge: with awareness of the transcendent and with moral truths. Its purpose was not to indoctrinate a young person in civics, but rather to teach what it is to be a true human being, living within a moral order. The person has primacy in liberal education." - Russel Kirk
Divine Mercy Academy offers a Classical Liberal Arts Education in the Catholic Tradition to children in Kindergarten through Eighth grade in the Severna Park, Maryland area. We are incredibly proud to provide this time-tested and highly successful curriculum paired with a thoroughly Catholic ethos at an affordable tuition.
Our Educational Plan
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
