Below are some of the Frequently Asked Questions about our school and the admissions process.  Should you find you have a question that is not listed here, contact our admissions office.  Knowing the best way to experience any school is to see it first hand, we encourage you to schedule a private tour or set up a shadow day.  

How long is the school day?

The bell to begin the school day at Mercymount rings at 8:30a.m. and rings again at 3:00p.m. to signify the end of the day.  Students may arrive between 8:15a.m. and 8:30a.m. without the need to pay for before care.  

Do you have before and after school care?

Mercymount Country Day School faculty provide care for students in our Preschool (age 3) program through Grade 8.  Students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 are eligible for care from 7:00a.m. through 8:15a.m. and 3:00p.m. through 6:00p.m. Students in Pre-K are eligible for care from 7:45a.m. through 8:15a.m. and 3:00p.m. through 6:00p.m. While the before school program offers a laid back atmosphere to socialize with peers, the after school program includes snack, homework and play/social time.  Both services are provided to those enrolled at Mercymount for $8.00/hr.  

Is there bus transportation?

Students who live in Cumberland R.I., Woonsocket R.I. and North Smithfield are eligible for bussing to and from school.  For further details, please contact the transportation department of your local school district.

Does Mercymount Country Day School offer financial aid?

What is Project Based Learning?    

Mercymount Country Day School connects the student centered pedagogy with their current Hartford Standards based curriculum.  In Project Based Learning (PBL) students are actively involved in real world and personally meaningful projects.  While PBL is hands on learning, we also say it is “minds on learning” helping to further develop problem solving skills in our students.  

Does Mercymount Country Day School offer academic assistance? 

Mercymount teachers are available to provide before and after school help as it pertains to their coursework.  Students in grades 4-8 are provided the additional opportunity to attend “Homework Club” Tuesdays and Thursdays after school to complete assignments with guidance from teachers on hand.  Mercymount also has additional support through our Resource Coordinator to help those students with accommodation plans.
