Welcome to Veracross and your Parent Portal!Veracross is a comprehensive school information management system that will enable you to effectively monitor your child's education and activities. Each parent is provided an account to access various parts of student life. For specific questions about schedules, please contact your son's counselor. For grade concerns, it is best to contact the subject teacher.
New parents will have access to the Parent Portal after August 1st of each year. Parents should use the same credentials as the Admissions Portal. If you have just registered at DeMatha, please allow 2 business days for your account to be activated.
