School Notes

  • We`re a Catholic school, but you don`t have to be Catholic! Yes, we offer daily prayer, weekly Mass, Prayer Buddies, and a commitment to serving our community by "blending learning with faith and faith with daily life." But we welcome all faiths (20% of our students are not Catholic) and families who desire a moral, spiritual environment for their children.
  • An urban boarding opportunity that is just for you!  Our premier boarding facility is located in the heart of Downtown Roanoke, Virginia. The dorm facility and program is run by our partner, Wilson International. The building is completely updated with a fully secured access control program, designated fiber optic internet service, laundry facilities, and a full-time chef. Wilson International offers innovative dorm programming for both domestic and international boarding students that support Roanoke Catholic's overall mission. 
  • We are affordable. We are not a private school but a Catholic school - catholic meaning "universal." Our goal is to be open to all families regardless of income. 
  • We prepare for what`s next. Our graduates earn a 100% college acceptance rate and each year more than $3 million in scholarships. And with our dual enrollment and Advanced Placement courses, our students can graduate with as many as 24 college credits, giving our families even more value for their hard-earned tuition dollars by lowering their future college costs.
  • Individualized classes, fully endorsed teachers. From PreK (3 and 4 year olds) to Grade 12, our student-teacher ratio is about 15:1. All of our teachers hold valid Virginia state teacher certification, ensuring our students receive the finest instruction available.
  • We compete outside the classroom too. RCS Celtics` athletics features 26 middle school, junior varsity and varsity teams that annually compete for the state`s highest honors. We nurture artistic expression through Theater, Dance, Choir, Band and Visual Arts. Student-run activities include Yearbook, Student Newspaper, Key Club, National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Student Government Association, Red Cross Club and Prolife Club.
