The history of Holy Rosary High school goes back to the year 1964 when it was started to meet the pressing needs of Moodbidri town and the sub urban areas around in which lacked  schools for girls. The school was opened by very Rev. Mother Theodosia A.C  Superior General of the Apostolic Carmel with the approval and blessings of  Rt.Rev-Bishop Raymond D’Mello Bishop of Mangalore. On the memorable day of the inauguration of the school forty pupils were admitted. This fulfilled the desires of the local parish and people of Moodbidri Town. As the school grew in numbers provision was made to make it co-educational in 1989.

Higher education of youth was now an urgent need in the town and so the Management decided to upgrade the institution to a composite Pre-University College in 2002.

It was the dream of the Community to have a school with quality education that will also provide Faith Education to the children of our Parish, which they are deprived of in other Institutions. This desire of ours was further strengthened with the interest and encouragement of our Parish Priest and the Parishoners.
