Rosarian today: Parents say students learn respect, responsibility

Palm Beach Daily News: November 29, 2015

Within the first three months as head of school at Rosarian Academy, Stephen Rubenacker accompanied a group of students to see Pope Francis address Congress.

ÒThat was really special,Ó Rubenacker said. ÒThey brought back stories and powerful messages that the pope delivered.Ó

Rubenacker is the first male principal in the schoolÕs 90-year history.

HeÕs passionate about faith-based education in an independent school setting.

ÒThis is the whole package,Ó he said. ÒI believe Rosarian Academy, being a Catholic independent institution that is faith driven, is a perfect complement to the needs of the 21st century student. ThereÕs a focus on the whole child Ñ ethical and moral development while offering a rigorous curriculum in an environment thatÕs collaborative and nurturing.Ó

Rubenacker moved his fily from Long Island, where he was the middle school principal at Friends Academy, a Quaker independent college preparatory school.

Everyone has been welcoming, Rubenacker said, to him, his wife, Kate, and their two children, Daniel, 4, and Thomas, 6. Both attend Rosarian.
