Mercymount Country Day School, a private Catholic elementary school (preschool through 8th grade) sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas (RSM). The school aims to foster a sense of personal worth and appreciation of the worth of others. This basic principle of Jesus Christ flows from oral tradition and Sacred Scripture itself. The Sisters of Mercy historically have encouraged each person to the call of Jesus to love oneself and others, to be the best one can be with the gifts, talents and grace provided and to give generously of him/herself to the less fortunate. A Mercymount education is synonymous with quality private education at an affordable price. With over twenty classrooms, a gymnasium, a library, and art, music, computer, and resource rooms, we are considered a showcase of learning. In 2006, we completed construction of a new, state of the art, addition to the school that houses a new computer lab and classroom, a media center, new art and music classrooms, 3 kindergarten classrooms, a preschool classroom and new administrative offices. Two playground areas for children, four outdoor basketball hoops, and a parking lot for 112 cars complete the school property. In 2011, we opened a middle school addition including a new science lab, computer lab and chapel.
The student body is coeducational and made up of various ethnic groups. Mercymount admits students regardless of any race, color, sex, religion, national or ethnic origin.The administration, faculty and staff number over 55 people who consist of lay men and women as well as religious men and women.Busing is available from the towns of Cumberland, Woonsocket, Burrillville & North Smithfield in Rhode Island.
