De Marillac Academy, a private tuition-free Catholic school serving grades 4-8 in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, seeks a highly motivated, experienced, and mission-driven individual to join our faculty. This is an extraordinary opportunity for an educator to play a critical role in directing De Marillac’s progress toward breaking the cycle of poverty through education.


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 children, youth and families of the Tenderloin and SoMa neighborhoods. We believe that 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, and therefore transforms the Tenderloin and beyond.


De Marillac accompanies low-income families through an innovative and comprehensive school program and a dynamic graduate support program that continues through high school and beyond. All students attend De Marillac Academy on a full, annual scholarship. In 2017-18, De Marillac Academy is proud to serve 115 fourth through eighth grade students, 278 alumni through the Graduate Support Program, and over 230 school families through our unique wrap-around clinical and family support program.
