Welcome to our school! For over 80 years, Saint Rose of Lima has been an urban Catholic school that is committed to the students, parents and community in which we serve. We prepare and nurture students of all faiths to be caring, responsible and well-rounded citizens of character with a life-long passion for learning, service and living Gospel values.  While conscious of the need to prepare our children for success in a rapidly changing and technology-driven world, we recognize that "the soul of education is the education of the soul".  (Pope Pius XI)
