Rosarian Academy Announces Expansion Plans with Latest Land Purchase!

Rosarian Academy in West Palm Beach, Florida, has bought land next to its Flagler Drive campus. This will help the school get ready for its second century.

The school started its effort to improve its campus in 2019 by cutting the ribbon on its new Smith Moore Field, resurfacing its Jake Rubin Field, and making improvements to the play areas for preschoolers, lower school students, and kindergarteners.

The school recently bought 804, 808, and 810 N. Olive Ave. in West Palm Beach. These are the last buildings that are right next to its 807 N. Flagler Drive campus.

Also, the city of West Palm Beach has given permission to buy the abandoned Eucalyptus Street alley, which goes east of Olive Avenue and finishes at Rosarian’s campus.

With these purchases, the school will be able to fence in and protect its campus between Seventh and Eighth Streets, North Olive Avenue, and North Flagler Drive, which is all on the same city block.

Head of School Linda Trethewey said, “For 30 years, Rosarian Academy’s leaders have seen the value in buying these properties and have made plans to do so.”

“When we finally had the chance to move forward with the purchase of these buildings and the closing of the alley, we knew what to do next because we had a lot of experience. The purchase couldn’t have come at a better time because it will let us move forward with plans to grow and help our growing community.

Rosarian Academy was started by the Adrian Dominican Sisters in 1925. It has classes for kids from preschool (Mosaic) to eighth grade.

“This community has had generations of people who have worked hard to make Rosarian Academy what it is today,” said Nicholas Coniglio, who chairs Rosarian Academy’s board of directors. “This moment is the result of the hard work and dedication of many people over the years.”

“I’m touched and grateful for what they’ve done for our students today, and I’ve seen with my own eyes how the school has helped, guided, and given my five kids chances to grow in school, sports, religion, and the arts.

I see this purchase as the first step toward making these chances available to more families and students, especially since Palm Beach County is still growing at a rate that has never been seen before, Coniglio said.

“Since 2020, there has been a lot of pressure on the best schools in Palm Beach County to grow,” Trethewey said. “Because Northeast schools are so good, families who move to our area have very high standards.

Rosarian Academy wants to take on more students while staying true to its 98-year Dominican practice of teaching the whole person and giving them a good start in life.
