“Our way to pay it forward is to support and nourish assistance in the professional development of our teachers, the enhancement of our academic programs and to assist in the investment in technology and science programs to enable Holy Rosary to continue to provide safe, clean and up-to-date facilities and programs for the continued development of leadership in our future students, all at tuition levels that are affordable for hard-working families. Let us give all our children the same head start I was fortunate to have at Holy Rosary Academy,” said Lemann.

(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Holy Rosary Academy & Preschool which provides a Catholic education to children from preschool through eighth grade, is open for new enrollments.
“We are a small, vibrant community. We care about children and provide a rigorous education along with teachings of the Catholic Church to help our students become the leaders of tomorrow,” said Principal Cheryll Austin.
The kindergarten through eighth grade program at Holy Rosary Academy has been providing San Bernardino-area students a Catholic education since 1947. The school offers a challenging Catholic education which help students achieve, academic success, moral responsibility and spiritual growth.
In the school’s 67 year history, Holy Rosary Academy has created many graduates who went on to be community leaders. One of these leaders is Bill Lemann, who is currently a partner in the law firm Fullerton, Lemann, Schaffer & Dominick.
“I was fortunate that, from the outset of my formal education, my family found a second home for me at Holy Rosary Academy. For eight formative and memorable years, I was entrusted to Holy Rosary leadership to nurture my total being in mind, body and spirit. I am pleased that successive generations have continued to have confidence in the benefits of the formidable education Holy Rosary offers to all. I attribute my modest success in life, thirst for knowledge and formal training in large part to that foundation so generously and carefully set out for me in my early youth,” said Lemann.
In 2010, Holy Rosary Academy started producing leaders of tomorrow at even an earlier age. This is when Holy Rosary Preschool was formed for children ages 2.5 and older who are not in kindergarten yet.
The preschool is licensed for 44 preschool children to learn in comfort. The school offers three separate preschool programs to help working families with child care and provides a safe learning environment for young children.
The different preschool programs allow students to attend school two, three or five days a week. Within these programs parents have the option to send their child for a half-day, school day or a full day. Holy Rosary’s preschool is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. to accommodate working parents.
Holy Rosary Academy & Preschool isn’t for every student. One of its key factors for success is helping students to find their identity and create a strong base in their Catholic faith.
“We expect our students’ families to be actively involved in worship at a Catholic Church,” Principal Austin said. “We want our students to grow and succeed spiritually, intellectually, morally, physically, socially, culturally, and emotionally.
“Our school focuses on our belief that Jesus Christ is always with us, and serves as the role model for our teachers, staff and hopefully, our students,” said Austin. She continued, “The Catholic Church’s teachings reinforce what they will learn in the Academy, which will include the importance of taking responsibility for their own actions, treating themselves and others with dignity and respect, and striving for academic excellence. The Catholic Church teaches these same values, so the reinforcement from church will help ensure their greatest success.”
Holy Rosary Academy had to increase its tuition rates slightly this year due to the increase in California’s minimum wage law. However, Holy Rosary Academy works with families on a case-by-case basis regarding costs, payment plans, etc. to help parents afford to enroll their children. Holy Rosary Academy & Preschool also offers discounts to families with more than one student enrolled.
