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.
