“I am pleased to announce that Our Lady of Mercy School has been re-accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges “ stated Mr. Scott Fuller, Principal of Our Lady of Mercy School, East Greenwich, RI. “When I arrived at Our Lady of Mercy School five years ago, there was much that needed to be done to further advance and develop the curriculum, instruction, and technology and also to improve the school infrastructure. With the support of Father Healey along with the dedication and hard work of our faculty and staff, our school continues to improve and excel in every way. Accreditation by NEASC is widely known to be the ‘gold standard”. We are overjoyed that Our Lady of Mercy School has indeed met the gold standard!”
