God has blessed our school, students and families in many ways over the last 25+ years!
Resurrection Catholic School was founded in 1981 as a co-operative preschool by parents of Resurrection Parish. By 1990 the program had grown substantially. Encouraged by our Pastor, Fr. Valentine Sheedy, the elementary school was begun under the leadership of Principal Mrs. Sue Schluender. From a humble beginning with 88 students in 1990 RCS grew to over 500 students by the year 2000. Our second Principal, Mrs. Nancy Genzel, joined the school in 1995 leading RCS to its initial accreditation from the Florida Catholic Conference in April 1998. National recognition soon followed with the Catholic Schools for Tomorrow award in 2001 and the 2004 Outstanding School Board award. Resurrection Catholic School was recognized as an U. S. Department of Education No Child Left Behind 2004 Blue Ribbon School in Washington, D.C. in November 2004. As our student body has grown, so have our facilities. We completed our first elementary facility in the summer of 1995. A new pre-school and play area opened in 1997. Phase I of the middle school was completed in 1999. Phase II of the middle school, which included two additional classrooms, an art room, and a state-of-the-art science lab was completed in 2002. A sports court was installed during the summer of 2002 and a covered roof, concession stand, scoreboard and outdoor bathrooms were added in 2007. In 2012, all middle school students were given iPads to further enhance their learning experience. Future plans include new primary facilities with upgraded administration offices, a new media center/library, and a gymnasium. Resurrection Catholic School is renowned for its outstanding faculty, value-laden environment and quality academic programs. It continues to remain faithful to its original and primary mission to "embrace the message of Jesus Christ and to empower children to integrate His values and teachings into their lives" as it soars to excellence in the new millennia.
