I had 4 great years at St. Rita. The education, friendships and and overall brotherhood can not be compared.
The teachers there are great, they are compassionate, understanding and tough when needed.
The principal has a great religious outlook, also geared toward student getting a excellent education.
The priests and brothers there are top tier, you could talk. To them and learn many things from religion to life.
My athletic coaches taught my what it means to be a teammate, a good player and how wins and losses do not describe who you are.
My fellow students are all my brothers now, friends I will for a lifetime.
I would highly recommend St. Rita to any grammar school boy looking to become a man.

I am truly grateful for the sacrifices my Parents have made for me to attend such a great School. I liked all my classes, learned a great deal from all my Teachers. learned how to handle obstacles i faced in ways that really helped me. I feel i have grown into the man my Teachers ,and Parents could be proud of. I will so With the on Graduate and go to College where i will major in buisness and accounting. With all the values education and friendship i have gained from attending St Rita i feel that i will be ready for what my future has in store for me. I learned alot about myself during the retreat i was a part of. There is nothing that i would change about the school.
I loved the energy and spirit of Saint Rita. It felt like a home away from home. Of course everything isnt always perfect, but you get out what you put in. Like many other things it takes time to warm up to Saint Rita. Especially coming from a coed school to all boys, but it’s a great community, and I love the fact I am a Ritaman.
