At St. Rita, teachers and administrators often receive questions from community members asking how Ritamen seem to go on to do so many great things.
The St. Rita philosophy of partnering with great families to help Ritamen build a solid foundation--spiritually, academically, athletically, and socially seems to be the key. When St. Rita graduates leave St. Rita's campus for college, they are prepared to succeed.
One recent example of success is St. Rita graduate Tim McNicholas '09. He has been nominated for a Regional Emmy Award. Tim grew up in St. Gerald Parish and graduated from St. Rita High School. After receiving his bachelors degree in Journalism (Radio/TV) from St. Ambrose University, Tim went on to become a reporter for several television stations, before landing at WISH-TV in Indianapolis, where he is making his mark.
