Pillars of DeMatha
DeMatha Catholic High School stands at the intersection of several great traditions: the 2000-year-old Catholic intellectual tradition of reason informing faith, the 800-year-old tradition of the Trinitarians and their commitment to faith and redemption, and its own history of excellence since 1946.
One of the great strengths of DeMatha is that we know what we stand for and our students embrace this knowledge when they graduate.
DeMatha builds its program on both the formation of faith, community and service, and the information of academics, arts and athletics that come together to create Faith-Filled Gentlemen and Scholars.
Faith. Community. Service. Academics. Arts. Athletics
Affixed to the main building and visible from the front circle is a banner that outlines the six core promises that we make at DeMatha. Each promise represents a pillar of DeMatha’s foundation.
The first three pillars are dedicated values that inform the pursuit of excellence of the second three pillars.
