Welcome from our Principal
Welcome to St. Rose Catholic School. We serve students from Preschool through Eighth Grade. St. Rose School was founded in 1931 by Father Raters, staffed with the Ursuline Sisters as faculty. The original school was built in downtown Santa Rosa and moved to our present site next to Cardinal Newman High School in 1985. Our Catholic Faith is the strong foundation that guides our students daily, permeated with the Ursuline ethos of Serviam (I will serve) and the St. Rose Way. The St. Rose Way coupled with Serviam reminds the students and staff to serve those in need and live with compassion, kindness, selflessness, and love for others and God.
We have a strong and challenging academic program for our students in grades Kindergarten through Eighth striving to lead them towards a personal goal of excellence in their academic efforts and performance. Not only do we offer a solid academic curriculum, we also have a strong partnership with the parents enabling us to nourish the whole child’s faith journey and their academic, social, emotional, and physical needs.
Our ultimate goal here at St. Rose is to prepare the students to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers with the emphasis that they are continually guided by God’s teachings and love. The faculty, staff, and I hope to prepare the students to become faithful Catholic and Christian citizens of the world.
