Mother of Divine Grace is very proud to congratulate our 7 National Merit Finalists in the 2014-2015 12th Grade class: Grace S, Thomas K, Peter R, Emily H, Hannah S, Mary G, Rachel B.
Mother of Divine Grace students took the National Latin Exam in Spring 2012. We are happy to report that 82% of the 166 students taking the exam achieved a first, second, third or fourth place medal. This is particularly impressive as only 45% of those taking the exam nationally medaled. Every student in our Advanced Latin class achieved a medal including 2 Gold Medals in Latin V, the highest level of the exam offered. We had a total of 42 Gold Medals, two in the Latin V exam, two in the Latin III-IV exam, 13 in the Latin III exam, 10 in the Latin II exam, and 15 in the Latin I exam. There were nine perfect papers. We are very proud of our students and teachers.
Of the seniors who graduated from MODG in 2013-2014, 76% went on to pursue a BA, and an additional 6% to a two-year program. The average SAT scores for the MODG seniors (class of 2014) are well above the national average. In fact, they are 39 points higher in Mathematics (552 versus 513), 103 points higher in Critical Reading (600 versus 497), and 101 points higher in Writing (588 versus 487).
MODG students perform well on other standardized tests.
Mother of Divine Grace School's students have earned a variety of academic scholarships including the National Merit Scholarship.

In fact, the MODG 2013-2014 graduating class was offered a collected total of over $5 million in scholarship monies.
Adam graduated with honors from Alma College in 2009 with a double major in math and physics. In 2008, he was selected (via the University of Michigan) to spend his summer working on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the particle physics laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. Adam's project involved developing an online system for monitoring the flow of scientific data from the experiments. He is currently pursuing graduate studies in physics at the University of Michigan where he is studying cosmology and astrophysics, specifically "Dark Energy." His professors have sent him to conferences in San Francisco, Madrid, and Chicago, as well as on several research trips to Chile. His future plans are to continue researching and eventually teach physics.To meet more of our graduates click here
