St. Rita School inspires students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade eight to achieve academic excellence in a safe, nurturing and faith-filled Catholic environment.

We prepare students to be morally responsible, innovative thinkers who, in today’s technology-guided global community, live and share the Love of Christ.

From the Desk of Mrs. Tiezzi

Dear St. Rita Parents/Guardians,

I am delighted to announce that we are one step closer to launching our new FACTS Student Information System (SIS) school management tool. We are in the process of setting up the FACTS Family Portal –a private secure online platform that will allow you to see academic information specific to your child, while protecting their information from others. All you need is an internet-capable device to view information such as: attendance, progress reports, discipline, homework, school calendar, family account balances with online payment, school directory, and other useful school information. At this time this system will only be used for new student applications and re-enrollment for the upcoming school year. We expect to have the re-enrollment information available for you beginning next week. In order to re-enroll your child/ren for the 2024-2025 school year your tuition account must be current. A separate email will be sent out to you regarding creating your family portal account. Access to the financial aid portion of the portal will be granted once the re-enrollment process is completed. There is a $160 re-enrollment fee which includes a $10 processing fee for FACTS.

Once again, the School Finance Board has worked together with the school leadership to better understand the needs of our community. The tuition schedule presented below will allow us to keep the same level of programming to better meet the needs of all our students. If financial or other challenges cause you to question your return to St. Rita School, please contact me as soon as possible. We will do everything we can to help your family remain a part of the St. Rita School community. Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in your child/ren’s educational journey.

SRS Tuition Rates for 2024-2025

A few weeks back we requested that during morning drop off car drivers leave one lane open for teachers to enter the parking lot if they arrive before 7:50 A.M. This morning many of our teachers had difficulty entering the parking lot before 7:50 as both lanes were blocked by cars. Leaving the right lane open will allow our teachers access to their parking spots. Thank you for your cooperation.


Now that the Spring weather has arrived many of our families are allowing their children to play after dismissal. Please monitor your children as cars are entering our parking lot. Also climbing the trees, the brick walls on the property, or the statutes of Mary and Jesus is not allowed. Thank you for modeling for your children safe and respectful play habits.


We are midway through the Lenten season and we are very grateful to our students and families for their generosity by contributing to contribute to our Lenten service project. Throughout Lent our faculty and students will focus on prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Our goal is to get our students to think beyond themselves and to focus on kindness and mercy. Our service project this year is in support of Sacred Hearts School in Maui, Hawaii, earmarking the money specifically for the students and families impacted by the recent devastating wildfires. 


“Wishing you a pot o’ gold and all the joy your heart can hold. May your home and all therein be blessed with God’s love.” Have a very happy St Patrick’s Day and a very holy St. Joseph’s Day! Thank you for entrusting your child/ren to our care.

God Bless,

Mrs. Tiezzi
