A Little about the History of Catholic Schools...
Here is an excerpt from an excellent article about the rich roots of Catholic education and the focus on an outreach to all!
"From their very beginning, Catholic schools have focused on teaching poor and ethnic minority groups. Because of this, Catholic schools hold a rich tradition of educating students from all social and economic backgrounds." Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy wholeheartedly supports the notion and mission of educational access for all children, regardless of a family's ability to pay.
