Mercy Preparatory Academy

We are a University-Model School and that means we combine the best attributes of traditional schooling with the best attributes of homeschool and integrate them into one model.
The result is quality, cost-effective, college-preparatory education that gives parents more time for imparting their own faith and values to their children.
In partnership with one another, parents and the school work together toward a mutual goal: to produce wholesome, competent, and virtuous followers of Christ who will change the world in their generation.".

The opening of this option will be a great addition to Waxahachie. I have had the pleasure of getting to meet some of the teachers and families involved with this school and they are all great people. I will have 4 children attending this fall and cannot wait to see this school impact their lives and the community around them!

So excited to see this school opening and know the hearts behind its founding. My kids have thrived in this model and I love the time it allows for them to participate in extracurriculars. Have already seen firsthand the way Mercy Prep includes new/old families alike and truly supports and cares for each other like we are called to do. Educators are top-notch and care deeply for their students and have a passion for their calling.
