Program of Studies

The 2016-17 Catalog of Courses contains brief descriptions of each course of study that is currently offered to DeMatha students during this academic year.

These descriptions are skeletons that teachers and students will flesh out and bring to life over the term of the course. DeMatha continually reflects on its academic offerings to provide a program of studies that serves the need, interests and abilities of each student.

We recommend every student plans his program in consultation with his parents, teachers and counselors. DeMatha provides the formal aspect of a education at a critical time of his life. Through the program of studies, a partnership of parents and students, and in coordination with the religious and co-curricular activities of the school, we attempt to prepare each student for adulthood.
