Rosarian Academy Community:

With utmost gratitude, we present the 2016-2017 Giving Report. The support and generosity of parents, alumni parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends of Rosarian allow us to continue to be at the forefront of independent school education and provide an unparalleled Catholic learning environment. Tuition alone does not cover all of the costs associated with attending Rosarian Academy. Fundraising is the lifeblood from which we are able to cover the additional expenses needed to operate our school. Every cent of the funds raised through the efforts of The Rosarian Fund and annual Rose Ball & Auction support our children, their teachers and the programs offered. Together, we made tremendous progress throughout the 2016-2017 school year to enhance our students’ experiences and provide the foundation for success in any 21st century career path. We lived our faith through the continued development of advisory, school family, and service initiatives. We increased resources dedicated to implementing a more robust Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program. Singapore Math was fully implemented in kindergarten and used to enhance the first-through-fourth-grade math curriculum. We expanded our science programming to include Lower and Middle School STEM Labs, in addition to science and computer labs. We added a full-time STEM teacher to facilitate the growth of this program. Educational technology increased to include 1:1 devices in Middle School and a significant influx of iPads in the Lower School classrooms. We implemented a more extensive system of co-curricular classes in the Lower School and electives within Middle School to include robotics and programming, music, and the arts. We took great strides to further support our students’ foundational skills in reading and literacy. We extended the opportunities offered to students with a revitalized and robust after-school program: Rosarian in the Afternoons (RITA). Beyond the classroom, we enhanced other aspects of student life, including well-being and safety. The Dining Hall received a major overhaul of its kitchen, and we upgraded the quality of our food service with the addition of FLIK Independent School Dining. We entered into partnership with the West Palm Beach Police Department to solidify campus security: student safety remains of utmost importance. We are proud of the initiatives taken to be a more inclusive, diverse community where children can participate to the fullest. We increased the financial aid pool and assisted 1 of every 4 families with their tuition and fees. We added transportation routes to include complimentary bussing to the areas South and East of campus, in addition to the North and West routes. We also began providing athletic bussing to allow increased participation within the Middle School athletic program. We continued to attract and retain the highest quality faculty and staff. The compensation and benefit pool grew to a level equal to that of our competitors. We are truly blessed to have such an outstanding group of individuals who faithfully serve as the stewards of our mission. Once again, we extend our appreciation to you for supporting Rosarian Academy so that we can continue to educate our precious children and provide them with the strongest foundation for life. With gratitude and blessings,
