Rosarian Welcomes New Middle School Principal

Linda Trethewey

Rosarian Academy Head of School Stephen Rubenacker recently announced the appointment of Linda Trethewey as middle school principal.

Trethewey joins Rosarian from St. Rose of Lima Catholic School in Miami Shores, where she worked as curriculum director, teacher and school administrator. She served as assistant principal in both the Maryland public school system and the Archdiocese of Miami, including 10 years at St. Bonaventure Catholic School.

After graduating from Chatham University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, Trethewey went on to receive her master’s degree in supervision and administration from Towson University. She is currently a doctoral candidate in management and supervision at St. Thomas University in Miami.

The middle school principal search began in February when Sister Donna Baker announced her resignation after 16 years of service to Rosarian Academy to spend more time working in service of the Adrian Dominican Sisters.

“As a devout Catholic with over 25 years of experience in public, private and diocesan education, [Trethewey] brings a great deal of experience and wisdom to our school. We are thrilled that she will be joining us,” Rubenacker said.

Trethewey officially joined the Rosarian Academy community on July 1.

“I am so blessed to join the Rosarian Academy administrative team,” she said. “I have already experienced the warm welcome that makes Rosarian Academy a special place. As middle school principal, I look forward to fostering the continued rigor and strong curriculum commitment, as well as infusing the gospel message in all areas of the daily routine and curriculum.”

Linda Trethewey and her husband, Scott, reside in Fort Lauderdale and have four children.

The Rosarian Academy is an independent, Catholic school located on Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach. For more information, visit or call (561) 345-3106.
