We love making a difference. The Rosarian Academy community lives out its faith in service to others. Through our partnership with Fresh Rx, our lower school students learn organic gardening skills and promote caring for the earth, sustainability and service, as the produce helps feed the poor in our community. School-wide service opportunities, open to families and friends, occur periodically throughout the school year and include gleaning crops for local food banks, beach cleanups, and meal prep and delivery to the homeless. In middle school, completing service hours is a part of the Religion curriculum. 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.
Opportunities to engage in services include:
Organizing food, toy and clothing drives
Leading holiday-themed parties and activities for the disadvantaged children at The Lord’s Place family campus and PediKidz
