The Dechant Foundation is to provide our schools with ample funds to carry on a legacy of Catholic Education. In 2007-08 more than 1,000 children attended the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Dodge City. A Catholic education is fertile ground for cultivating vocations and ensuring our rich faith is passed from generation to generation. The commitment of our teachers and staff provides our children with high academics grounded in the faith. This is a component unique to our schools. Our children are trained and encouraged to learn about and worship our Lord...to be active members of the Body of Christ.
