11th Annual Scholarship Benefit
Thursday, March 16, 2017
Inspired by the Daughters of Charity and De La Salle Christian Brothers, De Marillac Academy provides a life-changing, accessible Catholic educational experience for the underserved children, youth and families of the Tenderloin and surrounding communities.
At De Marillac Academy, we believe that neighborhood of residence and socioeconomic status should not determine a child’s access to a quality education or ultimate success in life. De Marillac’s holistic program liberates students and graduates to lead lives of choice, meaning and purpose. Every day, De Marillac Academy unites philanthropists with low-income families to break the cycle of poverty through education.
The De Marillac Academy community practices and teaches six virtues – responsibility, compassion, gratitude, perseverance, leadership, and integrity – in order to model Jesus in our everyday lives. These virtues lay the foundation for our Schoolwide Learning Expectations.
year we are proud to serve 118 fourth through eighth grade students in
our school program, 231 high school and post-secondary age youth in our
unique graduate support program, and over 230 families in our unique
wrap around clinical and family support program.
