Both St. Pius V and Holy Rosary Catholic Schools served students from Pre-K3 through eighth grade. Through the generosity of our donors, in 2017 we were able to combine our two schools and build the new Guardian Catholic School, residing on the Holy Rosary campus.
Recognizing early education as an essential component to long-term academic success, Guardian Catholic School will continue our focus on early learning that began in 2007 with early learning centers on both campuses. Today, our Early Learning Program boasts a 5-star rating from the Early Learning Coalition of Duval and 100 percent of our Pre-K students achieve “Kindergarten-ready” status—making our centers the most highly-rated programs in Jacksonville’s urban core.
Throughout their educational experience, our students are prepared with critical thinking skills, confidence and a life-long love of learning. In fact, more than 90 percent of our alumni go on to graduate high school (well above both local and state average) and pursue higher education.
