Holy Rosary Academy has been a great fit for our kids. The curriculum is rigorous and the teachers are outstanding. The culture that permeates the school is grounded in striving for virtue and truly engaging each student in the task of his own education. I recommend anyone seeking a classroom environment that challenges his children to rise to their fullest potential -academically, spiritually, and socially- to look into Holy Rosary Academy.
We are so incredibly thankful for finding Holy Rosary Academy for our two children. They are receiving an excellent classical education from faculty that strive for excellence from all students.
We just started some of our kids here this year, and everything has been a great experience. Coming from ASD, our kids were struggling, and in just the short time we have been there, they are progressing by leaps and bounds - not just academically but spiritually and socially. Can't say enough about how grateful we are now to be a part of this school and community!
We are very thankful for Holy Rosary Academy, the faculty, and the community. Classical and Catholic education prepared our children well for college and their futures! HRA instilled a love of learning and disciplined thought processes in our children. They provided strong academic and religious habits. Our kids are now in college and on the dean's list, go to church, and have faithful friends who share our values. What we taught at home was supported and built on at the school. We got our money's worth in college scholarships and opportunities!
Proud parent of 2 Holy Rosary Grads. They continue to practice their Catholic faith. Both could have gone to almost any University they chose. They are both Deans listed in their respective programs and on track for excellent jobs. More importantly, they are confident, intelligent, well-spoken adults and productive members of society.
Holy Rosary was a fantastic high school education, going into college I didn`t feel like there was much of a transition period. It prepared me for every aspect of college that it could`ve, and my classmates and I are still great friends 3 years after I`ve graduated from HRA.
Holy Rosary is an amazing school that taught my children about their Catholic faith and helped to develop their character. After being in ASD for several years we moved our children to Holy Rosary. During our time at Holy Rosary, they were challenged in their education and grew immensely in their academics. We have loved the community at Holy Rosary and encourage anyone in Anchorage to consider this school.
We love this school for its faithfulness to the Catholic Tradition and its classical methods.
