Welcome to RKA!

Come as you are. Be your Authentic self. 

Rosati-Kain Academy is the only all-girls Catholic school in the city of St. Louis. Educating diverse young women in an urban, multicultural, and spiritual environment is what we have been doing since 1911. Our beautiful building sits at the foot of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, and is surrounded by the most iconic institutions in the city of St. Louis. In addition to an innovative and experiential curriculum, the urban neighborhood of the Central West End is our classroom. Our students can walk to Washington University’s Medical Campus, Cortex Innovation Community, Forest Park, the Chase Park Plaza, Left Bank Books, Schlafly Library, and eclectic shops and restaurants. Our multicultural study body is unparalleled among any of the independent all-girl’s schools in the area. It is common to hear multiple languages spoken in the hallways and school events. While we instill the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph, we welcome and celebrate students of all faiths. Drawing from over 60 zip-codes, we have the most affordable tuition and offer over $1 million in scholarships.

We look forward to meeting your family and share all that we do to empower the fiercely confident and academically unstoppable girls and young women who make our school so unique. Thank you for your interest in Rosati-Kain Academy.
