About Holy Rosary

History and Mission

Holy Rosary School opened in 1891, as Tacoma’s first Catholic school. Throughout its 120 years, the school has maintained a rich tradition of excellence in Catholic education. Our vision statement drives everything we do: “Our children, created in the image of God and entrusted to our care, under our guidance and God’s grace will grow in response to God’s plan for their lives.”

Centrally Located
Our location in the heart of Tacoma provides a unique opportunity for parents working downtown to be just minutes away from their children during the school day.

More to Offer
We provide complete pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade academic and elective programs, both before and after school extended care, and hot lunch programs to support working parents. Holy Rosary School and Parish are rich with family tradition, cultural diversity, and faith in God.

Affordable and Accessible
Our admissions program works to make this quality Catholic education available to all families. We recognize that parents are the primary educators of their child. Initiatives such as our Room Parent Program provide opportunities for parents to get involved in their child’s school life.
