A Message from Our School

Dear Parents,

It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome you to St. Rita School. We believe our students are the best testimony of life at our school. These young people are eager to learn, fervent in prayer, and they desire to serve others.

St. Rita School boasts a qualified faculty that is dedicated to the development of our students spiritually, academically, morally, physically, and emotionally. When our students graduate, they continue to be successful in area high schools and are a credit to their community.

We are proud to offer a range of both curricular and co-curricular activities, including newspaper, sports, yearbook, Spanish in pre-kindergarten through eighth grades, and music. We invite you to experience the spirit of our school, “a place where the love of Christ is lived and shared.”

In the Heart of Christ,

Our Administration & Faculty
