FAQ’s

FAQ’s

The unification initiative is a consolidation of our Johnstown area Catholic schools into ONE strengthened PreK-12 system. This is inclusive of the Catholic elementary schools and high school, now known as Bishop McCort Catholic Academy.

With the goal of unifying as one school system, with one identity and brand, the elementary school name will change from Divine Mercy Catholic Academy to Bishop McCort Catholic Elementary (BMCE) – East and West Campus. Bishop McCort Catholic High School (BMCHS) will remain as such. Both schools will encompass the Bishop McCort Catholic Academy PreK-12 system.

The new system entity will be officially in operation as of July 1, 2024, but changes are already underway. This collaborative effort has been a core focus since 2020-21 by the school boards, administrations, and the Altoona-Johnstown Catholic Diocese. After seeing the initial results of the Meitler consulting group’s findings, it was apparent that collaborative efforts will help to strengthen our schools and expand on the positive growth currently underway.

The goal is to build on our inclusive, world-class educational institution, providing academic excellence, structure, and diverse extracurricular opportunities to our students and families, with a strong focus on faith and traditional values.

Spread the good word and help us to promote our tradition of success and our future focused on excellence for all. We want all our families and potential new families to WITNESS THE DIFFERENCE.

All of the things you love about our schools will not change.
