We exist to teach as Jesus did through the education of the whole person and development of students' individual talents so that they can know God and serve Him in building a just society.
The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 is Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service. The annual observance starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2015 is January 25-31.
According to the NCEA as a response to member-requests for a theme and logo that would last more than a year, this theme will be used for at least three years. This decision was made in 2014, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of National Catholic Schools Week.
The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. For certain, schools are communities…small families in their own right…but also members of the larger community of home, church, city and nation.
The logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.
Faith, knowledge and service are three measures by which any Catholic school can and should be judged. DCC strives to achieve these goals daily.
The Central Difference: Learn Well. Live Well. Serve Well.
