Our Mission

The Mission of Rosemont College flows from the educational philosophy of the sponsoring religious congregation which opened Rosemont in 1921, the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.

This philosophy is imbued with the spirit and educational principles of the Founder of the Society, Cornelia Connelly. This Holy Child education is a clearly defined yet flexible ideal, rooted in Christian values and expressions, attuned to learning opportunities that enable students to respond to life with joy, zeal and compassion. The only College in a world-wide network of Holy Child educational institutions, Rosemont is grounded in the Holy Child philosophy which encourages students to meet diversity and change with confidence in their own gifts and in God, who has made covenant with the human family.
