Holy Rosary Catholic School

Mission Statement & Philosophy

Mission Statement

Holy Rosary Elementary School, a ministry of Holy Rosary Church, rooted in the Dominican tradition of study, prayer and truth, provides a quality Catholic education and a foundation for higher learning and service within a diverse community.

We, in partnership with our families, are a faith community which shares its love of God and instills high academic values. We guide students to an understanding of who they are and an appreciation for what they can contribute to the world.



The Holy Rosary Catholic School community is a diverse family consisting of students, parents, staff, clergy, and administration, representing various cultures and parishes. We identify ourselves as a part of the larger community of Catholics at Holy Rosary Church and surrounding parishes, and see our primary mission as the imparting of values and self-worth consistent with the Gospel message and the teachings of the Catholic Church.

We acknowledge the parents of our school community as the primary educators of their children. We view ourselves as their active partners in the nurturing and encouragement of growth in each child's spiritual, academic, psychological, physical, cultural, and social development. We believe that each child is a unique individual, gifted by God with the potential for happiness and health.
