The Divine Mercy Catholic Academy is the combination of two Catholic elementary schools in Ozone Park.
Nativity BVM School and St. Stanislaus BM School. Both of these schools were comprised of long standing Kindergarten through Grade 8 classes with the recent addition of pre-school/nursery school programs.
Due to changing demographics in the Ozone Park neighborhood, it became necessary to combine these forces to maintain a strong Catholic/Parochial school presence in the community.
This reorganization by the Diocese of Brooklyn was the first of it's kind in Queens, but not the first in the city.
We hope to continue to gain support and strength as we go forward into the future as a leader in education for the entire City of New York.
Our students have consistently been in the top percentile for testing conducted by the State of New York.
That will not change. Neither will our commitment to provide the best possible education for all of our students.
