The mission of Monsignor Donovan Catholic high School (MDCHS) as a Catholic college-preparatory school is to develop leaders with the competence, conscience, compassion, confidence, and courage who, out of love for Christ and others, will radiate Christ in their lives.
MDCHS is a college-preparatory school dedicated to providing opportunities for the development of the spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual, social, and physical growth of each student.
As we strive to nurture within each student the belief that we are all created by a personal and a loving God who cares for us and desires that we share with Him His life of happiness, our goal is to work in partnership with parents in developing in their sons and daughters a sense of responsibility to God, to themselves, and to their fellow human beings.
We strive to help each student to develop a realistic and positive self-image, thus enabling the student to be a productive and happy individual.
