Empathy and Mercy Teams
Generally ages 6 - 16 and Grades 1 - 8
Students on the Empathy and Mercy Teams take core academic classes, which are adapted to meet students’ individual (IEP) goals and needs. These students also participate in a variety of vocational classes, as well as on-campus Work-Based Learning experiences, that are designed to build skills that will make students ready for a full day of job training when they move into the high school program.
Being part of Empathy and Mercy Teams is a valuable experience for students at St. Elizabeth School. Teachers and specialists working with the Empathy and Mercy Teams focus on helping students become members of the St. Elizabeth School community—they make sure that students feel safe and respected, building confidence, which will help them to meet their academic and social goals.
