About St. Rita

St. Rita Catholic School has been cultivating New Orleans' strong leaders, dedicated servants, and curious learners for over 90 years. At St. Rita, 80% of the students we serve qualify for the federal meals program, and the majority of our students are African-American. Our mission, permeated by the charism of the Marianites of Holy Cross, is to celebrate Catholic tradition, strive for academic excellence, and nurture student growth within a family atmosphere of love, compassion, and service. In 2015, St. Rita partnered with Seton to become the first blended learning Catholic school in the city in an effort to create a personalized and data-driven instructional program that ensures that each student thrives in both college and life.
