ABOUT US: 
 
MISSION AND VISION Inspired by the Daughters of Charity and De La Salle Christian Brothers, De Marillac Academy provides a lifechanging, 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. 
 
THE SCHOOL AND GRADUATE SUPPORT PROGRAM An independent Lasallian Vincentian Catholic elementary school, De Marillac educates low-income, underserved children, youth, and families of the Tenderloin and surrounding communities through an innovative fourth through eighth grade school program and a dynamic Graduate Support Program (GSP) that continues through high school and beyond.  De Marillac Academy provides a values-based, academically rigorous, tuition-free education to lowincome 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 120 students in the fourth through eighth grades, 299 alumni through the Graduate Support Program and 242 school families through our unique wrap-around clinical and family-support program.  
 
 
Position:  Open until filled Start Date: ASAP
