DePaul Catholic High School provides a Catholic experience of educational sharing which promotes, protects, and nurtures the dignity of each person while fostering a communal commitment of love and service to all of God's people.
Our staff and administration are dedicated to providing you with the finest possible educational experience in a safe, supportive environment, rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We believe the values rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ call for all members of the educational community to recognize their need for: spiritual growth centered in Christ; a developed intellect; physical health; emotional maturity; and a commitment to the respect for others in the moral, cultural, and civic arenas.
We believe DePaul Catholic provides students the opportunity to strive for excellence and learn according to their ability.
We believe in challenging students to think critically, communicate effectively, develop a sense of social and moral justice, and live accordingly.
