St. Rose strives to guide her students to be both scholars and disciples. We believe that we provide students with tools and skills that will be important for their future successes in the classroom, and as faithful followers of Christ. As we begin another school year, we look to numbers that reflect the numerous successes and achievements our alums have accomplished in their days after St. Rose.
This past May, the St. Rose class of 2017 stood in front of their peers, family and friends and announced where they would be attending high school. 79% of those students were accepted and will be attending high school at one of four Catholic high schools in Denver: Arrupe Jesuit High School, Mullen High School, St. Mary’s Academy, and Bishop Machebeuf High School. One young man will even begin seminary high school in Mexico in a few short weeks.
While the class of 2017 is preparing to begin their freshman year of high school, three-fourths of the St. Rose class of 2013 will be stepping into their first year of college. In the past 4 years, St. Rose Alums have achieved a 90% high school graduation rate with 73% attending college. This is an impressive number compared to the 63.8% graduation rate of Denver Public School students. Aside from accomplishments during their high school career, the class of 2013 also boasts some impressive college acceptances. We’re very proud to announce that our alums from the class of 2013 will be attending the following universities this fall of 2017:
Colorado School of Mines
University of Denver
University of Colorado, Boulder
University of Colorado, Denver
University of Northern Colorado
Colorado State University
St. John’s University, MN
Metro State University
Some of these schools are close to St. Rose, and some of them are thousands of miles away. But wherever our students and alums travel, we hope they continue to find success as Catholic scholars and more importantly as faithful followers of Christ. St. Rose is only the beginning of their journey to be the best for the world.
