ACE Enrichment

Exclusively Divine Mercy Catholic Academy


The mission of the Divine Mercy School system is to help each student to reach his/her full potential. The ACE Enrichment program is a valuable asset that assists our school as we move forward attempting to reach the needs of all students. This program identifies the brightest children in grades 4, 5, and 6 and exposes them to topics and experiences that feed their inquisitive minds.

Below is an outline of the standards and activities that will challenge the students this year. My daughter, also an educator, tells me, "Gifted students need gifted activities." That is what we are attempting to do in the ACE Enrichment Program - provide gifted activities while stepping out of our comfort zone to learn more.
