A note from the Principal


     As the principal of Holy Rosary Catholic School, I would like to thank you for considering a private school education for your child.  It could be one of the best investments you ever make for your child’s future. Faith development, academic excellence, and dedication to service are key elements to Catholic education and set our school apart from other educational options.  There are many aspects to reflect upon as you consider Holy Rosary School: we offer a school environment that provides a family-like atmosphere, small class sizes, dedicated teachers with experience and knowledge, a faith-based curriculum, high academic standards, a commitment to service, and most importantly, a Catholic identity that welcomes students of all religious denominations to join us.

     We believe in supporting the parents as the child’s first teacher and in keeping communication between home and school a priority for nurturing and preparing our students for their next stage in life.  It is exciting to meet parents who demonstrate a passion for their child’s education. I would love to get together when it is convenient for you, give you a tour of the school, and answer any questions you may have about Holy Rosary School.  Please contact me so we can schedule a time to meet and begin the registration process, if you wish to do so.
