About

Rochester Catholic Schools (RCS) is a unified school system that provides high-quality Catholic education to more than 1,600 students living in the greater Rochester, Minnesota area and the Diocese of Winona. RCS is comprised of three grade schools: Holy Spirit Catholic School, St. Francis of Assisi School and St. John the Evangelist/St. Pius X School, and one secondary school - Lourdes High School.

Rochester Catholic Schools delivers high-quality instruction with challenging curriculum, maintains high expectations for its students and faculty, provides an inclusive, nurturing environment that champions personal relationships and is committed to preparing students for success in leading Christian adult lives. The strength and effectiveness of an RCS education rests on our commitment to the three pillars of Catholic education: spirituality, academics, and community. Together, these foundational pillars provide the support to develop well-rounded students who are formed in their faith, academically successful, and conscious of their social responsibility on both a local and global level.  

Mission Statement
The Rochester Catholic Schools system is a Christ-centered learning community that forms students who love, learn and live their faith in service to others.
