St. Rose-McCarthy Catholic School

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Rosetta Stone®, a global leader in technology-based language learning.


In 2018–2019, our school will learn to read, write, and speak Spanish together!* 


Rosetta Stone technology simulates the way people learn their native language with pictures and sounds in context, and with no translation. Students learn a new language "naturally" and at their own pace!​​

​​The technology includes instant speech feedback guides for correcting pronunciation. In addition, Rosetta Stone provides teacher resources as aids to classroom instruction.


Each student and teacher will have access to a dedicated Rosetta Stone website just for St. Rose-McCarthy. 


Students will study three days a week with teacher guidance. At home, we encourage parents to sit with their children and learn Spanish right along with them!​​

PROVISO: All lessons provided in non-Catholic textbooks are carefully screened to ensure they are appropriate for our students and do not in any way undermine Catholic teachings, morals, or values. Should a lesson be found lacking in the above conditions, it will not be presented to our students.
