Our History

The Sisters of the Resurrection, a religious order founded in Rome by Blessed Celine Borzecka and her daughter Mother Hedwig Borzecka in 1891, began its educational ministry in the United States in 1900. Sister Anne Strzelecka, C.R. opened Resurrection College Prep High School in 1922. Central to the Sisters’ mission is the transformation of society by uplifting women through education.


Today, Resurrection incorporates cutting-edge academic programs and activities that prepare young women for success in college, career and life. Having graduated nearly 14,000 young women in 90 classes, Resurrection continues to shape young women to reach their full potential and to become leaders of charity and truth who make a difference in society.
