Welcome from the Principal


Here at St. Rose of Lima Catholic School we have a motto, to Be a ROSE. In a number of ways we like to see our students have these four attributes throughout their day, life, and contribution to society.

Respect for All: All are welcome at St. Rose of Lima Catholic School. Our small school reflects a lot of the diversity of Franklin as it is the only faith-based school in town. We are a close school family who strives to make a difference in not only the school but the parish and community. Our theme for the year is “Igniting Hope to Light our Future with Joy” which will focus on having Hope in Christ, Hope Among us, and Hope for the world.

Obedience to Christ: St. Rose is able to be a Christ-centered school, rooted in its Catholic identity that is reflected from the moment you walk onto campus. We are called to help our students reach their true potential as a Christian, and see Christ in all of the students, families, and staff. Worshipping together, praying, and many daily interactions with one another, we join our parish as one to walk with on this faith-filled journey to raise civic-minded, caring, and joyous adults.

Service to Others: Through service projects, community outreaches, and different programs we do provide service to those in need. Also, older students mentor the younger students and help them throughout the year.

Excellence in Education: Data-driven expectations for all students to succeed is the goal at St. Rose. We strive to have constant monitoring of students’ academic progress, and use cutting edge approaches so that every child is challenged and instruction is differentiated.  We are a one-to-one school with chrome books, and teachers are trained to implement numerous supplemental websites to further the depth of knowledge for each student.

Our teachers are also committed to being lifelong learners that participate in continued professional development and professional learning communities to keep current on best practices for our students, and foster their God-given talents. We are accredited by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

As we continue to Ignite Hope, we hope that you will come see why we are proud to be a St. Rose Lion!


God Bless,

Mrs. Tekippe
