Message from the Principal
David Brilliant, Jr.
Dear Friends of Divine Redeemer,
In a day where school choice has become not only common place but even overwhelming, I am pleased that you are considering Divine Redeemer Catholic School. Divine Redeemer Catholic School is a wonderful choice where you will find a challenging academic program, a Christ-centered environment and a welcoming community atmosphere. Our students thrive in a safe and positive setting that supports you as parents in strengthening the whole student.
Faith, prayer and spiritual growth are intrinsic to an education at Divine Redeemer School. Each day begins and ends with prayer as well as includes instruction in Religion class. Students also attend an all school Mass once a week where classes sponsor the liturgy as well as the choir. Students in 2nd - 8th grades attend daily Mass one additional day a week to experience the beautiful gift of the daily Mass in its traditional form. In addition, we celebrate special events and prayers services throughout the year including things such as: a Living Rosary, Stations of the Cross, May Crowning and more. The sacrament of Reconciliation is offered to our students in both Advent and Lent. A Catholic School is more than just a place to learn about our faith, it is a place to live and practice it too. Our Catholic identity and spiritual growth are part of the fabric of Divine Redeemer Catholic School. Students, parents and faculty treasure the gift we have to learn in such a holy place.
Community is at the heart of what it is to be a part of Divine Redeemer Catholic School. Students find their homerooms to be mini communities within the larger community of the school. Through the buddy program, classes reach out to one another to celebrate each others successes and achievements. As a school, we reach out to those in need through our support of the Parish Food Pantry by bringing non-perishable food goods as our offertory for Mass. We recognize our part in our worldwide community through participation through various local and community service projects including regular support of our local Marian House. Parents and students celebrate community and support the school through such events as the Back-to-School Festival, Oktoberfest, the Silent Auction, PTCO and much, much more.
At Divine Redeemer Catholic School we offer a challenging curriculum that meets or exceeds State and National standards. Our Standardized Test scores reflect the success of our students in meeting the expectations of this curriculum. We have a schedule to ensure regular textbook adoption of each of the different subject areas in order to keep our materials as current as possible. We have introduced a Chrome Books in addition to our stationary computer lab to enable students better access to computer technology. Students are enriched through Music and Art in addition to their core curriculum and students have the opportunity to stay active through Physical Education. So much more is happening that is exciting in the academic world at Divine Redeemer School. We welcome you to make an appointment and tour our school to observe first hand the variety and creativity of learning taking place in our classrooms.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our exciting learning opportunity with you and your family. Please give us a call at (719) 471-7771.
Peace be with you,
David Brilliant, Jr.
