School Notes:

  • Welcome to Divine Child Elementary School. We are a Catholic school dedicated to the development of our students through the teaching and practice of Christian values in a challenging academic setting. Divine Child is one of the largest co-educational Catholic parish elementary school in Michigan, where boys and girls learn to work together and respect each other’s gifts and talents. Our classrooms and playing fields are faith-filled environments where our students grow spiritually, academically, physically, socially, and creatively. We are excited that you and your family are considering becoming part of the Divine Child Elementary School community.

    We opened our doors in 1952 and today remain one of the largest Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Detroit.  Our kindergarten and primary grades, 1st through 3rd grades, are self-contained with qualified, caring teachers who work with students of many ability levels (a special class such as art, music. P.E. or computers is offered daily and taught by other teachers).  Students in our intermediate grades, 4th through 6th grades, have three different teachers for their academic classes throughout the day, and our junior high classes, 7th and 8th grades, are departmentalized with students having six different teachers for their six different classes.

    Our school day begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m.  Many of our students paticipate in clubs, sports and acitivies which take place after school.

    In addition to weekly liturgies, our students attend Eucharistic Adoration every Tuesday during their religion class.  Divine Child also offers sacramental preparation for Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation.

    Our students perform well on standardized tests.  By the time our students reach junior high, the class average on the Iowa Assessment Testing is at the 75th percentile which is one grade level above average.

    Most of our parents are active in our Parent Guild which sponsors numerous activities throughout the year.  Parents are required to complete 15 service hours each year.

    School tours are available by appointment during the school day with shadow visits available for junior high applicants.  Please visit our website for additional information at www.divinechildelementaryschool.org.
