Dear friends and visitors,

Welcome to our school where we recognize that education transforms lives and thus offers the best hope for improving the quality of life for all of humanity. At Rosati-Kain our students are inspired to grow in knowledge, to embrace diversity, to courageously right injustices, to maintain integrity, to act compassionately and to reflect. We implement college preparatory curriculum, instruction and assessment for each student regardless of her learning style or potential.  Sensitivity to global cultures, a mastery of communication skills and concern for social justice is emphasized throughout the curriculum which not only plays a role in the formation of the entire student, but more significantly equips her for success in whatever she pursues.

Learning at Rosati-Kain occurs as a result of the efforts of quality teachers committed to their students.  State-of-the-art facilities, class size and advancements in technology supplement our distinguished faculty.  As experienced educators, our faculty cultivates a passion for learning, problem solving and research. Our graduates thrive on being able to critically think, analyze and apply complex concepts, which give meaning to their lives. We understand that they will persevere when they encounter challenges and that their successes related to advancements in technology, research, science, and medicine will be used for the betterment of all.

For more than 100 years, we have been educating young women. Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Rosati-Kain has generations of alumnae who continue to live out our core values of caritas, scientia, humilitas, and virtus. Our prized location in the vibrant Central West End, where one finds people enjoying galleries, boutiques and sidewalk cafés, provides us with enriching cultural and social experiences.

I am grateful to be a part of such a Spirit-filled community. I believe that you also will find your place at Rosati-Kain, and I encourage you to explore our website and then come visit us and see how we are preparing young women to thrive in the global society.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
