We love making a difference. The Rosarian Academy community lives out its faith in service to others. The Children’s House and kindergarten vegetable gardens promote caring for earth, sustainability and service, as the produce helps feed the poor in our community. Eighth-grade students visit nursing homes and children’s centers as part of their religion class curriculum. School-wide service opportunities, open to families and friends, occur periodically throughout the school year. Through their actions, students realize that their own well being is strengthened by service to others and the wider community.
Community service is an integral part of a Rosarian student’s education. From preschool to 8th grade, children experience opportunities to work in service of others. Students recognize that every person has the power to make a positive difference.
