Welcome to Saint Rose Academy


Saint Rose Academy is a private Catholic school operated by the Dominican Sisters of the Saint Cecilia Congregation that offers a premium education to students in grades 3k to 8th. Located atop Red Mountain and overlooking downtown Birmingham, Alabama, Saint Rose has served generations of school children since its doors first opened in 1956.  With 208 students representing 143 families from various areas of our great city, we are proud to minister and teach a wide cross-section of our community.

Inspired by Christ’s words, “I came that they may have life and have it to the full,” we at Saint Rose Academy dedicate our apostolate to providing a Catholic education in a nurturing environment, promoting the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical needs of the child.  Fully aware of the accelerating changes in society, we work diligently to lead our students in an unending pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.
