For more than 50 years, the mission of Rachel O. Merritt Academy, has been to nourish and challenge the intellectual abilities, creative talents, and spiritual growth of children. We fulfill this mission by providing a safe, loving, and faith-centered educational environment.
As a Christian-based school we begin each morning with the Lord’s Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance, then before lunch, each class recites a prayer. In the afternoon, we offer a Bible Club.
Our teachers use an academically challenging curriculum and also draw from their own expertise and experience to engage children in the adventure of learning. Our students also have the unique opportunity to participate in an enriching intergenerational program with senior residents who reside on the school campus.
