100 Campaign

Welcome to the Rosarian Academy Centennial Campaign. With a rich, nearly one-hundred-year-history of educating students with rigorous academics in the Dominican tradition, Rosarian Academy is investing in its next one hundred years through a multi-phase renovation of campus that will add a brand new Early Childhood Montessori center with additional classroom space and a full-size athletic field with stands, scoreboard, and parking. We invite you to learn more about this project and to join us in laying the foundation for the next one hundred years and beyond.

FAITH IN OUR FUTURE

For nearly a century, Rosarian Academy has provided a foundation for generations of students inspired by its Dominican identity and Gospel values. Our students’ accomplishments and alumni legacy are the markers of our success. Former students have confirmed their faith in Rosarian by enrolling their children and grandchildren, while current students are distinguished through admittance into the most sought-after local high schools and boarding schools across the nation. With faith in our foundation as Palm Beach County’s premier independent Catholic School, we are excited to boldly step into the future and embark on the next 100 years.

A dream envisioned for decades has now come to fruition. Rosarian Academy has purchased all the properties between 7th and 8th streets on Olive Avenue and now owns the entire contiguous city block surrounding the school. Our Board of Directors, Centennial Campaign Committee and the Rosarian community at large have reimagined the campus and developed a phased plan with groundbreaking set for May of 2023.

Our goal is to provide students with the tools to become resourceful leaders who work for the good of others through rigorous academics, enriching arts, competitive athletics, and faith-based instruction. We invite you to join us as we continue to grow as the premier educational institution at the center of a vibrant community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Rosarian Academy depends on annual giving to supplement its operating budget and provide the Rosarian experience for each student. We ask for your generosity in giving to this capital campaign in addition to your current annual giving to the school.

Rosarian Academy’s targeted goal at this time is ten million dollars. This target amount reflects current pricing and accounts for some potential minor cost fluctuations. While Rosarian Academy has made every effort to acquire an accurate cost projection, the possibility remains that unforeseeable circumstances could affect the total cost of the project.

With Rosarian Academy celebrating its centennial in the 2025-2026 academic year, the school’s goal is to kick off the celebration with a ribbon cutting on the new field in August 2025.

No, Rosarian Academy is in strong financial position and is able to begin the first phase of the project without all the funds raised. However, as our supporters show “Faith in our Future,” we also are showing faith in our supporters as we are depending on reaching our monetary goal to complete this project without leveraging the school into poor financial position.

Yes, currently Rosarian Academy is the only school with plans to expand its early childhood program.

Rosarian Academy has split its expansion into two phases, as seen on the “Expansion Plans” insert. In Phase 1, the school plans to: reconfigure the front hardscape, which will add parking and more traffic lanes to be used for pickup and dropoff, three new canopy-covered walkways connecting campus from Lewis to the Picotte building, and enclose the current employee garage and construct a ten-classroom (7 Early Childhood and 3 Kindergarten) Montessori Center with flex space, new adjacent playgrounds, and a Director’s office. The vacated kindergarten and Toddler House classrooms in the Lewis building will become first grade classrooms, which will make ample classroom space for three homerooms in grade two through four. In phase two, the vacated Children’s House classrooms in Lewis will be renovated and transformed into a spacious aftercare room, the current buildings along Olive Avenue (800, 804, 808, and 810 N. Olive Ave.) will be razed and replaced with a new regulation field with stands and a scoreboard so all practices and games will take place at Rosarian Academy as well as a new employee parking lot. The new field will allow for lower school intramurals and more athletic opportunities on the existing “Mary Alice Fortin field.” With both phases complete, Rosarian’s campus will be securely enclosed within one contiguous city block with all traffic and parking located outside of all fences.
