A Message from the Principal

Welcome!

I am thrilled to be a part of the Holy Rosary community. This is an amazing school for so many reasons. We are not only the oldest Catholic school operating in the State of Washington, but we are also the first bilingual Catholic school in the state! As a lifelong supporter of Catholic education, I am proud to be able to lead an outstanding group of teachers devoted to fulfilling Holy Rosary’s mission of serving any family committed to Catholic education.

Through our innovative bilingual program, the Juan Diego Academy, we have created a high quality, engaging, rigorous educational setting which will prepare students for the global world in which we all live. Beyond the commitment to providing an intellectually stimulating academic environment, is the desire to create a richly diverse faith community promoting the Gospel message of service to one another and helping students build a strong moral foundation.

As a lifelong resident of Tacoma and a graduate of Catholic education (St. Frances Cabrini, St. Martin’s University, and Seattle University), I believe that every child deserves to learn in an environment that addresses all of their needs: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical. Holy Rosary Regional School provides children with an excellent education in a loving, enriching environment. Here are just a few of the reasons that people choose Holy Rosary School:

  • Strong moral foundation
  • Innovative bilingual education (Juan Diego Academy)
  • High quality academic programs
  • Dedicated, compassionate teachers
  • Exceptional parent support
  • Small class sizes
  • Excellent communication between students/families and the school
  • Safe, loving environment

I hope that you will join our amazing community. If you would like to find out more information about us, please contact me at kdempsey@hrrsjda.org. Welcome aboard!
