Saint Rita Catholic School offers a warm, supportive environment conducive to learning. In addition to our academic preparation, we provide a strong foundation in religious education. Under the guidance of classroom teachers, students have the opportunity to participate in the celebration of our Faith.
Children of all faiths are welcome. We believe that our diverse student body provides a well-rounded environment in which children are encouraged to develop their full potential.
Extra curricular activities include Band, Strings, School Play, NJHS, Chess Club, Battle of the Books, Student Council, Track and Field, and Basketball.
An active Parent Teacher Organization supports the school by volunteering in the school and fundraising to support school programs.
In addition to the core curriculum, every child has instruction in Latin, Music, Art, Library Skills, Physical Education and Computer Literacy.
