St. Rose School

Educating Children to Know God, to Love Learning and to Serve Others with Joy

St. Rose of Lima School is an NEASC accredited Diocese of Bridgeport Catholic school that educates the whole child, from the early pre-school years through eighth grade. We pursue an exemplary curriculum that is rich in intellectual challenge and exceptional in academic achievement; we nurture the virtues of individual integrity and service to others; and we envelope our students in a faith-based, moral environment where Christ is the cornerstone.

St. Rose of Lima Pre-K through 8 Roman Catholic School educates children by providing a foundation for individual academic excellence in a faith-based community that is committed to fostering personal spiritual growth, physical development,responsibility, and service to others.

Recognized as the top performing school among the 38 schools in the Bridgeport Diocese, St. Rose School was awarded the prestigious Excelsior Award in 2007. The school is one of only fifty private schools nationally to be nominated for the United States Department of Education’s prestigious 2009 NCLB Blue Ribbon Award. Based on IOWA standardized test scores, this distinguished nomination recognizes schools whose academic performance ranks among the top 10% of all schools nationally. The school continues to maintain an above average national Blue Ribbon status since the 2009 recognition.

The St. Rose of Lima School academic programs are designed to exceed the requirements of the CT Department of Education, the Diocese of Bridgeport curriculum and NEASC accreditation standards in core areas such as Religion, Mathematics, History, Science, and Language Arts. We have a considerably high acceptance rate into the National Junior Honor Society and the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth Program – which invites students who rank in the top 99th percentile nationally to participate in this program.

Nearly 95% of our graduating students are placed in honors and advanced academic programs in both public and prominent Catholic and private schools such as Fairfield Preparatory, Laurelton Hall, Immaculate High School, St. Joseph High School, Holy Cross High School, Notre Dame High School, Chase Collegiate, Hopkins, Taft, Westover and Canterbury. Many of our students receive distinguished scholarships from these prestigious institutions.


Students have an opportunity to participate in many extra-curricular fee-based programs
that are offered by our trained staff members. Such programs include Art Club, Sewing Club, Math Club, Robotics Club, Yearbook, Volleyball Club, NJHS, Student Council, Knitting Club, Cooking Club, Tutoring and Resource Program, Jazz Band, Cherub Choir, Instrumental Lessons, Cheerleading and Pep Squad, Girl and Boy Scouts and much more! The school is a member of the Field and Track League of which K-8 students may participate as well as the Danbury Parochial Basketball League which is a try-out league for students in Grades 4 through Grade 8.

The school offers a morning and after school club fee-based program for students who need to arrive prior to regular school hours and for students who need to remain at school after regular school hours.
