“Verso l’alto” (towards the heights) is the motto commonly associated with Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. Divine Child High School challenges its students to ascend to the spiritual heights. The Divine Child High School theology teachers work in conjunction with Campus Ministry, focusing on intellectual engagement with the faith. The Theology department at Divine Child High School is committed to rigorous theological work with the goal of preparing our students to meet the challenges of the world thoughtfully, prayerfully, and intentionally. At the heart of that work is our commitment to helping our students build an intimate and lifelong relationship with Christ. We are driven by our belief that Catholic education exists to create disciples who will serve Christ in their local communities and in the world. Our goal is to foster in all of our students an awe of the faith, a commitment to lifelong learning, and an ability and willingness to explain and defend the faith.
