"I know that all of my kids have benefited from their Catholic education and the strength of the academic programs.... We are confident that our kids are all prepared to tackle whatever lies in their future with the foundation set by their St. Rita experience.

"As long time parishioners, we love the strong sense of community throughout the church and can see the overlap of this community throughout the school. The engagement of the children both academically and socially was very visible through the tour of each of the classrooms during their regular school day."

"Carrying the banner was actually pretty special. When I walked in, I was on the side near the wall. I walked past most of the teachers that taught me while I've been at St. Rita. Seeing their faces go by me while I was carrying that banner meant a lot to me. I've grown up here. It was really cool."
