    New and Transfer Students Admissions Process

    Students who enter St. Rose at kindergarten level participate in a small group screening process designed to assess their readiness for school. Those entering at other grade levels are assessed in a variety of ways. Previous report cards and standardized test scores are taken into consideration, as well as individual assessments by teachers. Once it has been determined that there is space, the student may be invited to participate on all or part of a school day. The St. Rose community will do everything possible to help students feel comfortable in their new school. Teachers and staff work diligently to ensure each child’s success. However, new students enter on a probationary status, which takes into account the following:

    • Student’s ability to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally,
    • Good attendance and punctuality,
    • Parent participation and support,
    • Parents are current with financial obligations to the school, and
    • Parents have disclosed all information beneficial to their child’s success at St Rose.
