Holy Rosary Catholic Education




We’d like to tell you how to get started and a bit about the families who invest their children’s time and their own personal time and financial resources in the journey of Catholic education. This page will serve as a running, frequently updated guide for people interested in the school and for HR stakeholders who want to help market the school.

WHEN DO I START THINKING ABOUT SCHOOL?

Birth

Holy Rosary Regional Catholic School is an Archdiocese of Philadelphia school which was formed in 2012 as a consolidation of 4 Catholic Schools – Epiphany of Our Lord, Our Lady of Victory (St. Paul’s, Holy Saviour), St. Titus, and Conshohocken Catholic (St Matthew Parish). The school has students from a number of other surrounding parishes.

If you are Catholic, your child’s spiritual life begins at baptism. Contact one of the listed parishes hyperlnked above.

St. Matthew Parish offers daycare through Pre-K 4 at their facility in Conshohocken.

Pre-School

Holy Rosary also offers a Pre-K 4 class.

Grades K – 8 (Ages 4 – 13)

Holy Rosary Regional is an Archdiocese of Philadelphia school and offers a K-8 education.

St. Matthew Parish also offers a CCD program for children attending public school.

Financial assistance is available through sources like The Maguire Foundation. Contact Holy Rosary for additional information.

Grades 9 – 12 (Ages 14 – 18)

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has a number of fine Catholic High School Programs. Holy Rosary students have excelled in surrounding public, Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and Private Catholic high schools in the local suburbs and Philadelphia area.

“How To Prepare My Kindergartner For Catholic High School”

We didn’t know it when we started this in 2016, but our event has become a nice series of speakers talking about the Catholic education journey from different role perspectives.

2016 – Christopher Mominey – Chief Operating Officer and Secretary for Catholic Education – Archdiocese of Philadelphia

2017 – Jason Bozzone, Jim Casey, and Frank Fox – Presidents of Pope John Paul II High School, Lansdale Catholic HS, and Archbishop John Carroll High School

2018 – 5 Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic High School Principals – Fr. Brian Kean (Pope John Paul II High School), Rita McGovern (Lansdale Catholic High School), Dr. Anchen Schulz (Archbishop John Carroll High School), Michele Beachy (John W Callahan High School [All Girls]), and Patricia Rooney (Bishop McDevitt High School). Space is limited. RSVP FOR OUR FEB 15, 2018 7pm EVENT by Feb 8, 2018 by clicking here.

In 2016, Christopher Mominey who is Chief Operating Officer and Secretary for Catholic Education – Archdiocese of Philadelphia had just been 5 months into his new job. He shared his perspective on Catholic education and the job ahead (Read here).

 

In 2017, Holy Rosary Regional offered a seminar at their Home and School Association meeting to surrounding parishes talking about the path from Kindergarten to High School. You can watch it here.

The list of questions answered in the video included:

  • What is the Admission Criteria?
  • When can prospective students shadow?
  • How can you best prepare for admission exams?
  • What do you see lacking in some incoming freshmen?
  • Are there differences in curriculum between the three schools?
  • Do you advise parents with younger children to get involved in extra-curricular activities?
  • Can your scholarship exam results be considered by other Archdiocesan high schools?
  • Can you explain the differentiation in price points between the three schools?

Again, financial assistance is available through scholarship and financial aid programs with the high schools and through the Maguire Foundation.

Stay Involved in school community and your own faith, your teachers are your mentors so take advantage of the experience they have in their field if you are interested, support your classmates – Erin Mahady HR ‘2015 / Archbishop Carroll ‘2019

There is always room for improvement both in and out of the classroom. At this point in your life, you’re probably worried about what the future will bring, or what you want to do. There will be plenty of time for that when you’re older. Stay true to yourself and those around you, and all will fall in place. Kindness and strong faith are key. Stay focused and work hard! Prepare for your future, but don’t stress about it! I wish you all the best of luck. – Quinn Giongo HR ‘2014 / LaSalle ‘2018
