MISSION AND VISION OF DE MARILLAC ACADEMY
Inspired by the Daughters of Charity and De La Salle Christian Brothers, De Marillac Academy provides a life-changing, accessible Catholic educational experience for the underserved children, youth and families of the Tenderloin and surrounding communities.
At De Marillac Academy, we believe that a neighborhood of residence and socioeconomic status should not determine a child’s access to quality education or ultimate success in life. De Marillac Academy’s holistic educational experience liberates students to lead lives of choice, meaning, and purpose, breaking the cycle of poverty through education, and transforming the Tenderloin and beyond.
De Marillac Academy is an independent Lasallian Vincentian Catholic elementary school, serving grades 4-8, located in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco. De Marillac Academy provides a values-based, academically rigorous, tuition-free education to low-income students from all faith and cultural backgrounds. De Marillac Academy opened in 2001 as an independent, Lasallian Vincentian Catholic school with a class of nineteen sixth graders. Today De Marillac serves 115 fourth through eighth grade students, 271 alumni through the Graduate Support Program, and 253 school families through our unique wrap around clinical and family support program. All students attend De Marillac on a full annual scholarship.
