We are an academic department at Divine Child High School committed to rigorous theological work with the goal of preparing our students to meet the challenges of the world thoughtfully, prayerfully, and intentionally. At the heart of that work is our commitment to helping our students build an intimate and lifelong relationship with Christ. We are driven by our belief that Catholic education exists to create disciples who will serve Christ in their local communities and in the world. Our goal is to foster in all of our students a love of the faith, a commitment to lifelong learning, and an ability and willingness to explain and defend the faith.
MISSION STATEMENT | Building on our foundational belief that all people have dignity as they are created in the image and likeness of God, our goal is to equip our students with the necessary intellectual, moral, and spiritual tools and sensibilities necessary to engage faithfully and responsively in the world. Inspired by Christ’s Gospel message, we promote lives of virtue and emphasize our awareness that we are uniquely called to serve God. Our community actively celebrates its faith together in the following ways:
- Daily Prayer
- Daily Theology classes
- Weekly Eucharistic Adoration
- Monthly in-school opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation as well as opportunities during Advent and Lent
- Weekly Mass and/or spiritual programming ("The Great Adventure")
- Annual Retreats for all grades
