The mission of Merritt Academy is to instill in its students academic excellence, character development, a love for life-long learning and service to others. 
 
MERRITT ACADEMY VISION STATEMENT
 
Our vision is that students leave school with:
  •  A set of moral values-honesty, integrity, good judgement 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.
