St Rita School
- Saint Rita School embraces the principle that “the soul of education is the education of the soul”.
- We are a small Catholic school dedicated to forming children intellectually and spiritually using the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church and the patrimony of Western Civilization.
- St. Rita School believes: children are created in God's image and therefore have great dignity; parents are the primary educators of their children and they glorify God by bringing their children closer to Him; education enhances a child's potential to glorify God; the school is to teach a strong academic curriculum, the tenets of the Catholic Faith, and the habits of mind and traits of character that are essential for success in this world and the next; teachers are to be living models of faith, animated by love and generosity, and capable of forming young minds and hearts; and the parish supports this Catholic education of children by providing prayer, the presence of priests and volunteers, and financial subsidies.
