Future Ready



Ask attorney Amy Leinen Guldner about her Catholic school experience6th grade and a big smile stretches brightly across her face.

 Guldner, a Denison native now residing in Southern California, attended St. Rose of Lima Catholic School from kindergarten through sixth grade.


“If you want a strong foundation in both academics and faith, prayerfully consider enrolling your children in any one of the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Sioux City,” she advises. “Your children will be nurtured, accepted as they are and motivated to become the best versions of themselves. Seeds will be planted and doors will be opened in many areas of their lives.”
