Principal's Message

Welcome to St Rita Catholic School - the finest K-8 Catholic School serving North Dallas.  Our mission is dedicated to providing a strong educational program that teaches Catholic tradition, values, supports the education of the whole child, provides a safe environment and promotes preparing students for a life of continuous learning and service to the community.


At St Rita we establish a Christ-centered environment where strong Catholic values are taught, modeled, learned and lived by all members of the community. These values begin with a gifted, caring, and welcoming staff that shares a host of talents with its students and, in turn, encourages students to share their time, abilities and leadership with one another.  As a National Blue Ribbon School, St Rita continues to provide a challenging academic curriculum which exceeds state standards while offering a quality fine arts and athletic program to develop their talents and interests.


As you navigate our website, you'll learn more about exciting programs where the creativity, uniqueness and self-esteem of each child is fostered and nurtured. Our students are taught the skills of critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration.


Thank you for your interest in St Rita Catholic School. We hope that what you see here will encourage you to visit our school, observe the sense of strong community and consider the excellent educational program we offer.

Yours in Christ, 

Dr. Carol Walsh
