Thank you parents, alumni, friends and families for your awesome words during a recent facebook post.  As Mrs. Andersen says:  “You are our best advertisers.”  Please read below: 

Ellen Sautner I do not own in Arverne by the Sea. Yet I own in the neighborhood. 3 of my 4 children attended St. Rose of Lima. You will not find a better Catholic school in Rockaway Beach! The diversity is beautiful, the culture warm and caring, the zero tolerancepolicy for bullying or disrespect (which is tolerated in many local schools) always made me feel my children were safe. If a situation does arise, it is addressed. The education is wonderful…. needs of all children from academic excellence to the struggling learner are all met!! So much of what has been lost in schools, teaching respect and caring for others goes on at St. Rose of Lima. No enabling entitlement going on there!! Wonderful choice!! In this day and age we need more schools like St. Rose!!

Jolynn Rivera-Simmons I did not send my kids but have family who did.. it’s a great school!!

Patricia Harvey I was a part of that school for 19 years they are simply the best, my kids still stay in touch.

Patricia McCarthy Daly I am a graduate of St. Rose of Lima and have been very involved in the Academy for decades and you can contact Principal Theresa Andersen directly for a tour and she would be happy to provide you with all they offer. Her # is 718-474-7079.

Tiffany Dawson Myy pastor and his wife have 4 of their children in st rose. They love it.

Terry Jo Burnett Does it cost alot

Laura Gallagher it is 440 a month and you have the option of after school which is 20.00 a day. You pay as you go for the afterschool. They also have early drop off at 7:15 am and they provide free breakfast. The school day is until 3 pm and half a days are until noon. I love St. Rose. I agree with everything that Ellen Sautner says.

Maureen Blute-kraus Tuition scholarships are available

Christian Pereda The best school in the Rockaway Beach Peninsula. My son currently attends St. Rose of Lima Catholic Academy and I wish the school offers High School / up to 12th Grade.

Maureen Blute-kraus I already have the blue prints drawn up. If i win the lottery IT WILL HAPPEN

Dylan Mancini St. Rose is a great school.

Patricia J. Mccabe My son went there from pre-K through 8 you will never find a better school. They turn kids into compassionate, responsible adults!!!!!

Eileen Latoni St Rose is an amazing school . My 2 brothers , my sister and myself graduated from there in the late 90’s . My daughter graduated in 2014 , she went from prek to 8th grade and my son is currently in the 6th grade and has been there since pre-k . The school is amazing . Tuition is reasonable . They have an after school program which runs Monday through Friday until 6pm .Absolutely no tolerance for bullying . I would call the school and speak to Ms. Andersen and ask to tour the school . You will not be disappointed!

Samantha Rae McKay Cost isn’t bad same price as daycare 2 days a week and they go 5 full days

Maureen Blute-kraus I graduated but i forget what yr! My son graduated in 2012 and my daughter graduates in june. The school is excellent. Im sorry to hear that the promise to build a primary school in ABTS was broken.

Victor M Rivera Pretty much what everyone says except for one OUTSTANDING,i have 3 kids that graduated from ST.Rose.

Margaret Bouderau St rose is the best school my son is in 2nd grade n he loves it… 💜💜💜💜

Andres Lopez Amazing school wouldn’t change nothing 👍👌💯💯


St. Francis of Assisi

Today we celebrate the Feast of Francis of Assisi with our St. Rose Families and their pets.  Fr. Kuroly blessed all the animals in person and/or in their picture brought by the students and their families.  Phil, the mascot of Pre3 our nursery class, was given a special blessing as well.
