Located in Fullerton, California, Rosary High School is a private, four-year secondary Catholic school for girls.
It opened in 1965 and operates under the present jurisdiction of the Diocese of Orange.
Our school philosophy is founded on a common vision and understanding of Catholic tradition, education, attitudes, beliefs, and values, as revealed in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the value of the family unit as the primary educational environment for our students; therefore, we work to assist the family in this endeavor.
We strive to provide a faith community which accepts Jesus Christ as the way to respond to one's neighbor, the truth to be communicated, and the life to be shared.
We uphold the dignity and uniqueness of each individual within the community experience.
We endeavor to provide guidance for her journey of faith and opportunities for her growth and development as a daughter of God.
Rosary High School offers a diversified college preparatory curriculum, complemented by an extensive co-curricular program.
We challenge each student to acquire and refine the skills necessary for a fulfilled, well-balanced life.
The faculty and staff are strongly committed to developing in our students academic excellence and technological competence in all areas.
We seek to cultivate leadership skills, initiative, personal accountability, and an increased sense of self-worth.
The goal of the Rosary community is to empower each student to become a woman of faith and a citizen who is knowledgeable, creative, ethical, and responsible.
