Home & School Association

Home & School Association


Home and School Association (HSA) is the parent organization of St. Rita Catholic School. Our goal is to enrich the educational experience of our children at St. Rita Catholic School through special events, volunteer programs, and community building.  Membership is automatic for all parents of St. Rita students, and each family is charged $50 dues in the fall.  All money raised by HSA goes directly to the school to benefit our students and teachers.
