Merritt Mission Statement



“The mission of Merritt Academy is to instill in its students academic excellence, character development, a love for lifelong learning, and service to others.”

 

Vision Statement

Our vision is that students leave school with:
· A set of moral values-honesty, integrity, good judgment and respect for others.
· A comprehensive set of skills and a desire for knowledge in reading, writing, mathematics, science, arts, technology and health including developing a strong self-esteem and high personal expectations. We value the partnership which exists between school, parents and community and the part it plays in realizing this vision.
