History

DRIVING EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION
60+ years of Divine Child

For over six decades, Divine Child Catholic Schools have provided young women and men with an excellent Catholic education. It is our responsibility to nurture the growth of students spiritually, academically, creatively and socially. Countless members of the Divine Child community have made a lasting impact on our schools. If it were not for Msgr. Weier, Msgr. Kucyk, Fr. Bilot, Fr. McCabe and the many members of the schools' leadership - including several alumni principals - our institution would not be where it is today. Our story began in 1950 when the Archdiocese of Detroit founded our parish. Shortly thereafter, our community rallied to build an elementary school, and the rest is history. Join us below for a look at more than 60 years of DC's storied past.
