    2 of our daughters graduated from Rosary and our 3rd is a current student. All have received an excellent education in a supportive, Christ-centered environment. What stood out to us about Rosary was that our daughters could be themselves in a single gender school. Rosary has helped each of them identify her gifts and strenghs and given them the confidence to be successful in their academic environments, on the playing field, as leaders in our community and church, and continued success in college. Rosary Academy does not rest on their laurels but continues to strive to improve each year. We are grateful that their focus is on the whole person: body, mind, and soul. We will always be grateful to Rosary Academy for partnering with us parents in the raising of our beautiful daughters!

    We chose Rosary Academy for our daughter even though it meant driving farther than any other Orange County Catholic school. Her faith has blossomed. Rosary has excellent faith formation and Campus Ministry. It is rewarding to see her give back her school altar serving at school masses, as well being a Rosary Ambassador. A highlight for me is Mother/Daughter Mass held in Rosary's beautiful chapel. I do everything I can to attend these early morning masses with my daughter. I also attend the Rosary Parent Prayer Group every Monday morning held in the Chapel. We also chose Rosary is for its student body enrollment. Our daughter has many opportunities to lead in extra-curricular activities. Her class sizes for Honors and AP are not overwhelming. Parents are given ample opportunity to become involved. I really appreciate Administration's continual encouragement to attend school events and to get involved with Parent Council. We are so happy at Rosary Academy, a win-win for our family.
    Rosary is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I went to public school my whole life and Rosary was my first experience with private school. I knew absolutely no one going into freshman year and made friends before school had even started. There were so many opportunities to meet new people and find new interests and hobbies. I never imagined myself being Student Body Spirit Commissioner and leading a religious retreat more than once! There have been so many amazing memories and opportunities I have made at Rosary. Not only did I make new friends that were in the graduating class of '16, '17, '18, and, of course, '19, but I also made many new friends among the faculty and staff. They accomodate each and every student and put in the effort to get to know and chat with everyone at the school. Rosary has shaped me into the woman I am today and I couldn't be more blessed to have gone to such a school.
