Without a dependable, alternative stream of income the school is heavily dependent on tuition and fees to cover annual operating costs.
Currently, almost 82% of RC’s operating costs are covered by tuition and student fees. Your contribution allows RC to keep tuition levels in line with what our community can afford.
Dr. Stickles believes that what is at stake is the original mission of our school. “Roselle Catholic High School was founded to educate the children of hard working parents who were willing to sacrifice for the betterment of their children’s future by providing a value-based, Catholic educational experience,” he said. “We must do everything possible to ensure that an RC education remains an manageable option for those parents who want their children to come here.”
We must preserve the original mission of our school. That is, we want to continue to provide a quality education for middle-class families at an affordable price.
A number of Roselle Catholic alumni have taken the initiative to create memorial scholarships to perpetuate the memory of a classmate or family member and honor and commemorate their legacy by assuring a Roselle Catholic education for the next generation of RC students.

Although Vice Principal his last several years at RC, Hagan was most famously known as RC’s Varsity Basketball Head Coach. During his 27 coaching years, he earned over 300 victories and more importantly a reputation for honesty and integrity.
Hagan literally embodies all that is good about Roselle Catholic. His treatment of every student on or off the court was always firm but fair, motivated by a genuine desire to make everyone’s life a little better every day.
Dr. Bob Stickles Scholarship
As a part of their 50th reunion celebration, a few of Bob’s classmates decided to pay a well deserved tribute to one of their own.
Dr. Robert Stickles, RC class of 1966, was the first graduate to become Principal & President. Since his retirement, he is still actively connected as President Emeritus and a member of the Board’s Development & Alumni Relations committee.
Stickles’ many great contributions to RC include helping the school navigate through some difficult financial times. To honor Bob’s prior and continued contributions to RC, the Bob Stickles Scholarship - a tuition-aid fund in Bob’s name for incoming freshman - was established recognizing his efforts and commitment to boosting the school’s enrollment.
