Admissions Process

Students whose parents desire an educational experience founded on the Catholic philosophy of education and who fulfill the age, health, academic and behavioral requirements are eligible for admission to the school.

Apply for Admissions

A student is admitted to the school on the premise that the student will benefit from and contribute to a Catholic, educational environment. Students are admitted on a probationary basis, subject to the student successfully completing one or more grading periods. Students with academic, behavioral or other needs that cannot be reasonably accommodated by the school may be denied admission or readmission. It is the responsibility of the principal to make decisions concerning acceptance of applicants.

Saint Rose School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, admission policies, athletic and other school administered programs.

Letters of acceptance will be sent to new students. This letter will include instructions for registration.
