School origins: a different idea
Our school was founded by a group of forward-thinking parents in 1977. They knew that strong, effective partnerships between parents and teachers are essential for children to achieve their greatest potential.
From birth to adulthood parents are the primary educators of their children. By forming a real partnership with parents, Rosemont gives students a powerful advantage.
We have found that success is certain for students whose teachers and parents collaborate with them in the development of their goals and strategies for pursuing academic excellence.
The school is part of an international network of schools founded on a common philosophy and intention. The common aim is to establish schools that are academically challenging and built on a solid foundation of Christian values. In keeping with these ideals Rosemont provides parents, teachers and students with access to pastoral care which is entrusted to the prelature of Opus Dei, an institution belonging to the Catholic Church.
In doing so they became part of an international network of schools committed to the same founding intentions.
Opus Dei is a Catholic institution founded by Saint Josemaría Escrivá. Its mission is to spread the message that work and the circumstances of everyday life are occasions for growing closer to God, for serving others, and for improving society.
“It is in the midst of the most material things of the earth that we must sanctify ourselves, serving God and all mankind,” said St. Josemaría. The family, marriage, work – all of our activities – are opportunities for dealing with and imitating Jesus Christ, trying to practice charity, patience, humility, diligence, integrity, cheerfulness and all the other human and Christian virtues.
Sanctifying work means to work with the spirit of Jesus Christ, to work competently and ethically, with the aim of loving God and serving others, and thus to sanctify the world from within, making the Gospel present in all activities whether they be outstanding or humble and hidden. In the eyes of God what matters is the love that is put into work, not its human success.
