Support Catholic education in Germantown. Please give to the DePaul Catholic School.
With a minimum of resources, the DePaul Catholic School provides one of the finest elementary school educations in the nation to some of its poorest kids. Our eighth graders are reading at eleventh-grade levels and doing tenth-grade math, and all of our graduates go on to high schools outside the neighborhood, where public schools are burdened by daunting inner-city problems.
As the only Catholic school in Germantown, the DePaul Catholic School is a refuge of safety, caring and discipline that enables students to rise above hardship and flourish. Our families understand the value of education and stand ready to make any sacrifice for the sake of their kids. The high-quality, values-based Catholic schooling that we offer can open up the doorway to further education and break the cycle of poverty. Our ability to hold out that hope is due not only to the devotion of our teachers and staff but to the generosity of many who share our thirst for justice and have joined us on our journey by giving of themselves and their resources. I am asking for your help once again.
