8-Pointed Star - An ancient symbol of regeneration, the 8 pointed star represents the new life and opportunities to which our students will have access as a result of a St. Rita Education.
Torch - The torch and the light emanating from it symbolize the chasing away the darkness and isolation of the communication barriers our students experience.
Book - The book is an outward sign of our mission as a school to educate children.
Cross on right page - Reflects our identity as a Catholic School.
"Surdi" on left page - Latin for deaf, it is an evocation of our founding as a Catholic school for the Deaf, but symbolizes our mission of educating all children with special communication needs.
Dream, Achieve, Soar - The 'D', 'A', and 'S' are depicted in American Sign Language, the primary method of communication to our school. Our motto represents the educational experience St. Rita offers to its students - we encourage them to dream, provide them with the necessary support and education to achieve those dreams, and proudly watch as they leave our school to share their gifts and talents with the world.
