The Parish School of Holy Rosary Catholic Church

Thank you for considering Catholic education and Christian formation for your child. It could be one of the best investments you could ever make for your child’s future. Faith development, academic excellence, and dedication to service are key elements to Catholic education and set our school apart from other educational options.  There are many aspects to reflect upon as you consider the option of Holy Rosary School: we offer a school environment that provides a family-like atmosphere, small class sizes which allow for one-on-one attention, dedicated teachers with experience and knowledge, a faith-based curriculum & high academic standards, a commitment to service, and most importantly, a Catholic identity where all are welcome to pray and live the Gospel.

We are glad to share our school with Holy Rosary Parish and the Detroit Lakes community as we teach to the needs of each child and provide academic, spiritual, social, and emotional growth.  We believe in supporting the parents as the child’s first teacher and in keeping communication between home and school a priority to nurture and prepare our students for their high school years.  Holy Rosary students graduate from 8th grade prepared to meet the moral and physical demands of the world around them.

The best way to experience Holy Rosary School is to “come and see”. Call and let us know when you would like to visit. Ask parents who have their children attending Holy Rosary how they feel about their experience.  Pray about your decision. We are here to support you in providing positive growth experiences for your child.

Thank you for considering Holy Rosary School for your child’s educational needs, and we look forward to being a part of your family’s life for years to come!    God bless,

Cathy Larson, Principal



Thank you for your interest in Holy Rosary Catholic School.  At Holy Rosary we are blessed to have a school filled with exceptional and caring teachers, administrators and staff members whose desire is to help form our students not just academically but as entire person. Here at Holy Rosary our students benefit from strong teachers, small class sizes and a faith filled environment where our Catholic Faith is lived and Jesus and His teachings are shared. It is the great gift of our school that we are able to teach our students the academic knowledge and skills that they need to succeed while at the same time helping to form them in faith, service and community.

As I reflect back on my own Catholic School education I see what a great gift it was for me to be able be in a place where all aspects of life (academic, social, spiritual, etc.) were taught at the same time. My Catholic School Education was a great gift given to me by my parents and I cannot thank them enough nor can I say enough about all the wonderful teachers that I had during my time in Catholic School.

Thank you, again, for considering Holy Rosary Catholic School for your children.

Peace and God Bless,


Msgr. Tim McGee
