As a mission of St. Rose Parish, St. Rose School educates each student as a unique child of God to know and live the Catholic faith and to achieve excellence.
As followers of Jesus, we of St. Rose School are called to teach and live Catholic beliefs through education and service in an academic environment. As Catholic educators at St. Rose School, we recognize that each child has been called to a personal relationship with God strengthened through education in the Catholic faith, in partnership with parents and in service to the community.

- We believe that we encourage, promote, and teach the life of Jesus as the one in whose footsteps we follow.

The Four Cornerstones
St. Rose School ’s academic program includes full day Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, as well as 1st through 8th grades. St. Rose School teaches a varied and appropriate curriculum in all subject areas at all levels. Language arts, math, reading, science, social studies, music, art, physical education, and computer science are taught on a regular basis. Our teaching staff provides a quality academic program which nurtures discovery and challenges the students to become life long learners.
Catholic doctrine is taught with conviction as truth, and children are taught to worship reverently and joyfully in personal and community prayer, including a weekly Mass, and by living out their faith. Religion is taught each day, but not in isolation: a spirit of faith is intentionally cultivated among faculty and infuses all activities at school. Our goal is to support family and parish faith formation by instilling in our children the gift of a lifelong love for God and others.
At St. Rose School , a student’s learning goes beyond the classroom with recognition of the need to serve the community. Our students work individually, as a class, with local parishes, and in the greater community doing service work. Our students volunteer and participate in local programs such as Loaves & Fishes, Providence Child Center, St. Francis Lunches, Pennies for the Poor, St. Vincent De Paul, and Catholic Charities.
St. Rose School welcomes students of all races, religions, and cultural backgrounds which provides a community rich in diverse family backgrounds and talents. Parent involvement in school life is encouraged. Staff and parents work together to nurture faithful, loving, and unselfish persons. We provide a curriculum that challenges students to engage in their community and to make decisions that will enrich their lives and the lives of others through community and service.
