An Investment in Your Child’s Future

Sending a son or daughter to a Catholic school is an investment in your child’s future, and a financial sacrifice for most families. Parental involvement and assistance in the Parent Guild, D.O.V.E.S., fundraisers and other activities helps in keeping school tuition costs down. Each DCES family is expected to contribute 15 parent service hours each year.
