DeMatha Catholic High School is a college preparatory institution dedicated to educating young men in the Trinitarian tradition. DeMatha's historic and ongoing mission is to serve students of differing abilities, interests, and backgrounds from the greater Washington Metropolitan area.
DeMatha Catholic High School offers to young men in the Washington area a college preparatory program in which faith and knowledge complement each other. A faculty and staff composed of Trinitarian religious and dedicated lay men and women provide a program of instruction that serves young men of varied intellectual, religious, cultural and economic backgrounds. The Trinitarian charism that informs DeMatha asks that students become men of action, men of prayer.
The DeMatha student develops spiritually and morally in a community where faith seeks understanding and is lived in service to neighbor. Religious instruction provides the student with an intellectual appreciation for the Judeo-Christian tradition as well as an ecumenical respect for diversity in religious expression and creed. Intellectual growth occurs within the moral framework and is achieved through a broad-based curriculum that incorporates appropriate pedagogical techniques and technological innovations.
