Why Catholic Education?
Our mission at DMCS is to greet and welcome every student with love and mercy. Our task is provide a Catholic education to students of all faith and socio-economic backgrounds, so as to foster development in body, mind and spirit.
Parents give their children life. For years, they work hard at building a family atmosphere animated by love and respect for God and man. The family is the first school for the child. But the family needs the help of the broader community to aid in the education of its child… especially when the child is entrusted to the care of an educational facility for 7-8 hours a day.
Catholic educators are “bound, as a mother, to give these children an education by which their whole life can be imbued with the spirit of Christ and at the same time, do all she can to promote the complete perfection of the human person, the good of earthly society and the building of a world that is more human.” (The Heart of Catholicism)
Why a nurturing, Catholic education catered to the whole child? Because children are worth it. In these early, foundational years of a child's life, they deserve a safe, caring environment where they can be seen, listened to, and challenged to reach their full potential. We see ourselves as an Apostolate of Mercy; a place where the call of the Gospel is incarnated in the love and mercy we strive to give each member of the DMCS family.
Developing the whole child, with the help of the parents, results in confident, respectful students who value life, family and God.
