Principal's Office


Dear Faculty, Staff, Administration, Members of the Advisory Board, Parents, Guardians, and Alumni,

Praise be Jesus Christ now and forever!

As we conclude the 2021-2022 school year, we are most grateful to Mr. Timothy O’Halloran, Interim Principal, the Vice Principals, Faculty and Staff who have worked so well together as a team during this time of transition.  “Thank you” to each and every one of you for your continued dedication, service and commitment to St. Rose High School!  We appreciate all you have done and continue to do.

At the dawn of the centennial of St. Rose High School in 2023, it gives us great joy and excitement to announce the appointment of Mr. Robert Dougherty as the new Principal of St. Rose High School beginning July 1, 2022.  Robert is a proud alumnus of St. Rose Grammar School (2001) and St. Rose High School (2005).  He joins the St. Rose family with a wealth of experience, knowledge and passion for Catholic education and exhibits a mission-driven enthusiasm as we envision a closer collaboration and partnership with both our high school and grammar school. He looks forward to joining our community!

Robert resides in Red Bank, NJ with his wife Michele and their one-year-old son, William.

Please join us in congratulating and welcoming Robert as we offer him our prayerful support and cooperation as our new Principal!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Rev. Msgr. Edward J. Arnister, Pastor
Rev. Christopher J. Dayton, PV, Chaplain
