Holy Rosary Catholic School exists for the purpose of assisting parents in the formation of their children according to Catholic principles.
We are committed to transmitting our Catholic heritage to all students and enabling them to experience the Gospel in daily life.
Students are recognized and respected as unique individuals reflecting the image of God. Teachers affirm the self-worth of each student and promote their desire to grow in his or her talents and abilities. Teachers empower the students to reach their full potential, and also provide for individual differences in learning. A secure foundation in basic skills is the support for academic excellence, which is enhanced by enrichment courses.
Religious education fosters faith and moral development in each student. Through Christian service, the students incorporate what they learn in daily life. Prayer, education, and service assist students in beginning their lifelong journey according to our faith tradition.
Holy Rosary, in the Diocese of Lansing are accredited every five years through the Michigan Non-Public Schools Accreditation Association (MNSAA). Accreditation is based on the National Catholic School Standards.
Diocesan schools’ students excel in academics while developing spiritually to become future leaders of our society.
Developing moral character, along with educational goals, is incorporated into the total learning expectation of each student.
Students in Holy Rosary School are providing ongoing opportunities to exercise virtue on a daily basis. Virtue is taught and encouraged in all activities and circumstances of school life. The goal is to help students intellectually understand and internalize the virtues they are asked to practice. This serves to make these virtues part of their own life principles, helping them to become true leaders of character. For this reason, Holy Rosary considers formation in virtue to be a vital component of the educational program.
Each week, a virtue will be studied. The main objective of Holy Rosary’s virtue program is to offer students, teachers, and parents a means to know, value, practice, and internalize virtues in a consistent and committed manner. The focus is on the practice and acquisition of specific virtues. A virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do the right thing. It allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of oneself (CC 1803).
Holy Rosary School uses the Disciple of Christ Education Virtue Program adopted by the Diocese of Lansing.
Faculty Vision Statement
As parents and educators, our most important goal is to ensure that every member of the school community will develop a personal relationship with God. Christ is the reason for our school. Rooted in the teachings of Jesus, Holy Rosary School is enriched by Catholic tradition and lived Gospel values, and is enhanced by the daily prayer and weekly celebration of liturgy and sacraments. The Eucharist is the heart of life in our school, and we draw our strength from it. We teach the students to respond to the universal call to holiness and encourage them to grow in virtue. We further nurture children’s knowledge and the practice of their faith and guide them to serve others through the use of their gifts and talents. We help the children in character formation based on Catholic values and morals.
Holy Rosary School works to create an atmosphere that mirrors Christ’s Gospel of love, recognizes the dignity of each person, and encourages each student’s ownership of his/her own speech and actions.
Holy Rosary School wants each student to become a lifelong learner, with experiences that empower him/her to search for the truth, to employ his/her creative imagination, to think critically and independently, to exercise right judgment, to make free and responsible choices, and use their gifts and talents in service of others.
Holy Rosary School strives to aid the parents in forming students to become Disciples of Christ and upright citizens, empowering them with a joyful vision and hope of a better world. Holy Rosary School encourages and equips students to make a difference in this world by embracing God’s Will and helping to bring about the Kingdom of God.
