Why Parents Choose Saint Rose of Lima Catholic School

Saint Rose Catholic School unites with the family to provide a quality Catholic education in a Christ-centered environment, promoting learning, love and service which prepares students for the future.

Saint Rose School is a Catholic elementary school. Its philosophy is derived from the application of fundamental Catholic teaching which holds that every human person made in the image and likeness of God has a dignity and an eternal destiny. It is the work of the school to support parents, the primary educators of their children, in the formation of each child.

Saint Rose seeks to build on the natural curiosity and wonder that children begin with in life in a nurturing environment. The school supports growth by developing skills and depth of understanding with the under-girding of self-discipline. Learning is to be a lifelong pursuit that results in human flourishing. Saint Rose, therefore, exposes students to all that is true, good and beautiful, understanding that through such exposure students will become more fully human and ultimately more fulfilled.
