Our 2.5-year-old daughter just spent her first year of preschool at Rosarian Academy and we couldn't be more pleased. She loves it at Rosarian and has learned so much this past year. We are incredibly thankful for her teachers and all of the staff for the love and support they have given her. They have also been so patient with us we experience all of this for the first time, communicating every step of the way. Our girl can't wait to go to school every day!

We sent our son Tripp to Rosarian's Early Childhood Education class and couldn't be happier. The Montessori program has helped him to learn and achieve by leaps and bounds, and having been home the first three years of his life, being in a classroom with 4 and 5 year olds to serve as surrogate big siblings to show him the ropes really helped to ease his transition. I`ve only heard positive comments about Rosarian in the community and I can see why.

With our oldest entering 7th grade and 2 more to follow, there is no place in the county that I would place my children for these key years of their life. RA provides a foundation like no other that I have no doubt will carry through their lives. From not only their strong religious base and their education but the key elements in life that make each and everyone of us a well rounded citizen making an impact in this life for the good.

Relocating to Florida required the search for a school. With meeting graduates of Rosarian who have flourished through high school and college their parents attested it to the strong foundation Rosarian provided so we had to see for ourselves. Our daughter started at age 4 and has grown to love her teachers. My husband and I have been impressed by the faculty. The sense of faith, community and focus on education is perfect.

Rosarian offers a safe environment, great classes and many athletic options for your child to participate in. The expanded STEM program is exceptional. The school offers expanded classes so your child can excel at any level. Their involvement with the Duke Tip program has helped our daughter prepare for high school as well.

Fantastic school. The teachers, staff and administrators care about my child's entire education - mind, body and soul. The curriculum is challenging and the facilities are top notch - especially the new STEM lab.

There has been a lot of change since my children started here but all has been for the better. I feel that they are moving in a great direction. The community of parents and faculty is outstanding and really support the children and families. Everyone is invested in ensuring that children excel.

We have three children at Rosarian Academy and couldn't be happier. Our children are not only learning to excel in the classroom but also to be strong young boys and girls who are compassionate and supportive of their fellow classmates.

Both of our children our currently in the Montessori program at Rosarian Academy and our flourishing due to the loving, caring and nurturing environment provided my such an amazing and dedicated Staff. From their day full of learning to the aftercare program we couldn't be happier and definitely recommend Rosarian Academy.

I highly recommend Rosarian Academy. As a parent of two children in the Montessori Toddler House and Children's house, we love everything about this school. The faculty, staff and administration are loving and exemplify great leadership. The academics (at all age levels) are outstanding and the school offers great programs to help foster the overall growth of the child, including music, Spanish, sign language, language, physical education, various sports, and opportunities for community service and outreach. The facilities are incredible, including a new theatre and gymnasium. And I couldn't be happier knowing that my children are receiving a phenomenal education rooted in the values of the Catholic faith.

My daughter attended Rosarian Academy from preschool all the way through the 8th grade - a total of 10 years. She had the most attentive and caring teachers, and she also enjoyed a wide variety of extracurricular school activities, including soccer, cheer-leading, and singing. Her creative spirit was especially nurtured as she participated in many of Rosarian's excellent school productions over the years. She truly loved being involved in every one, and her self-confidence blossomed. She went on to high school at the local arts high school as a vocal student, and is grateful to have had the well-rounded educational foundation that Rosarian provided her. We have been very blessed to have been a part of the Rosarian Academy school family.

Our family loves Rosarian's family friendly environment where we all share in the childrens'' experience. Our daughters have been there since pre-k and love their home away from home. Work hard, play hard, no nonsense environment. Challenging school work with lots of fun extra-curricular programs. We have enjoyed swimming, piano, Show Choir, cheer and the lower/middle school plays.

I had two children attend Rosarian Academy. Both went on to be accepted into high school magnet programs and they were more than prepared. They enjoyed the environment, teachers and students during their time at Rosarian Academy. The school's sense of community is fantastic. The teachers and staff were amazing.

The best decision we have made for our two children -- 11 years with the first and year 9 on the second. Our first is now performing at the very top of her class at one of the top private high schools leading her on the path to a great college career. Rosarian not only prepares its students to perform at the top in academics but also creates well-rounded people who make parents like me proud. Worth every penny and I will be forever grateful!

Rosarian Academy is an excellent school. My children have flourished there and my son, now in high school, is more than prepared. Rosarian also produces confident, enriched, motivated students who are leaders in and out of school. Go to any area high school and you will certainly find that the students who came from Rosarian are now leaders in their high school.

Rosarian has given us not only a great education for our 3 kids but has given us the opportunity to make family friendships that will last a life time. We could not be happier with the education, and values that our kids have gotten at the school that we are sure will be of great value as they are preparing to head off to college and as it has been when they stepped into HS.

I have two children who attend Rosarian Academy. I started there when my children were entering Kindergarten and the Pre-School Montessori Program four years ago. I have been impressed with care and the attention that has been given by every teacher and staff member. It is a wonderful community to be a part of and I know my children are getting the best education possible in the most nurturing environment.

Rosarian is a caring place where your children will receive not only a great education and faith formation but a wonderful sense of community and partnership. Being in Rosarian is belonging to a family, and that goes from the staff to the kids to the parents.

We love this school! I started my 9 month old in the Montessori program after experiencing great success with her older sister enrolling at 1 year. The staff is thoughtful, gentle and loving and the girls LOVE going to school! The skills they have learned are tremendous for their age. The community is warm and inviting. There is nothing ill to be said about our experience with Rosarian.
