In violent neighborhoods, Catholic Schools are instruments of peace…In what can seem like a confused culture, they offer places of order. - Philanthropy Roundtable’s report on Saving America’s Urban Catholic Schools.
The White House Domestic Policy Council has called faith-based schools “a critical asset.” In a recent study, using measures like test scores and graduation rates, the council found that religious schools close the racial and socioeconomic achievement gaps by 25 percent. This is especially true of schools servinglow-income populations like Germantown. The report further showed that the greater the poverty, the higher the value and more positive the inﬂuence a faith-based school has.
The vocation of DePaul Catholic teachers and staff is to give the children of Germantown the kind of high quality education they would receive in America’s more privileged neighborhoods. Our success is rooted in an academic program and school culture that educate the whole child—mind, heart, and spirit. The mix of rigorous curriculum, religious and moral instruction, daily prayer, and a ﬁrm but loving discipline brings order to the confusion of the street and makes the DePaul Catholic School a safe haven for learning, a rock of refuge for Germantown.
