Feature Article About De Marillac Academy in Saint Mary’s College Annual Report
The success of De Marillac Academy students and graduates is the subject of Lasallian research conducted by a Saint Mary’s College team, led by Educational Leadership Professor Rebecca Proehl. In an 80-page paper, “De Marillac Academy: Perseverance, Purpose, and Promise,” the researchers document the school’s use of the concept of grit, measured by student traits like curiosity, character, perseverance, and interest in long-term goals. The two most outstanding factors, said Proehl, are the school’s focus on perseverance and the student’s tendency to persevere. Proehl plans to continue her research, and will write a book about the school that is known as “a miracle in the Tenderloin.”
