Saint Rose Catholic School has been serving families in Sonoma County since 1931. The school is a vital educational ministry of Saint Rose Parish devoted to assisting each student to reach his or her full potential spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically. This Christ-centered education encourages our students to become lifelong learners who are responsible, just and moral leaders.


Our philosophy is based on the loving teachings of Christ, Catholic traditions and a strong preparatory education. Our commitment to excellence in education was molded and formed by the Ursuline sisters in 1931, and continues today as does their motto of Serviam.
