Holy Rosary Regional School/ Juan Diego Academy is our new name! Formed from the original Holy Rosary School, the new name signifies the regional orientation of our school as we look to draw students from all over the Puget Sound to our innovative two-way immersion model. We also now have a Board of Directors overseeing the operation of the school.
HRRS’s rich tradition of excellence in Catholic education began in 1891, when Father William, a Benedictine priest, opened the first Catholic school in Tacoma. Today, we continue to provide this education to all interested families in the greater Tacoma area. Holy Rosary works to find a way to make this quality Catholic education available to all families through a need-based Tuition Assistance Grant program.
HRRS/ Juan Diego Academy, a state accredited school, offers a comprehensive academic program for children in pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. This program prepares students for college preparatory high school programs. Our ITBS assessment program is used in grades 3 through 8 as an ongoing tool to direct instruction and assess the academic progress of students.
Through a generous grant by the Norcliffe Foundation, HRRS's classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and student response systems. The same grant provided for removal of all asbestos flooring and installation of new flooring in each classroom, new lights, new doors, and other capital improvements in our 100 year-old building.
This year we have begun our Two-Way Immersion (Spanish/English) program in pre-K and Kindergarten. In those grades, all students will receive instruction in Spanish and English. (for more information, see "Juan Diego Academy" link above). HRRS is adopting this model in order to improve its instruction for all students and to bring in more students to HRRS. We have such an excellent program that we want to share our ministry with more people! This fall, the program will move to 1st grade until our entire school is Two-Way Immersion in 2020.
