We look forward to having a conversation with you about Rosarian Academy and the admissions process.

Take a video tour of our school!


At Rosarian Academy, we understand that choosing the best educational environment for your child is a significant decision. Therefore, we strive to make the admissions experience a thoughtful and personalized process, enabling you to become familiar with us, as we cultivate a relationship with you and your child.

Offering small, student-focused classrooms, with hands-on teaching methods, we seek intellectually curious and enthusiastic learners, who will actively participate in our challenging academic environment, as well as our co-curricular and extracurricular activities.

Each spring, currently enrolled students and new students must register. A contract must be signed and a deposit made. The number of available spaces depends upon returning students. Siblings of Rosarian students have first priority. Date of receipt of application receives next priority.

Rosarian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and financial assistance programs, athletics and other school-administered programs.

  • Step 1: Submit an Inquiry & Tour our Campus

    The steps to admission vary, depending upon the grade level of the prospective student. However, in all cases, parents are encouraged to submit an inquiry form to the Admissions Office and schedule a day and time to tour our campus. This offers an amazing opportunity to discuss programs and the curriculum in detail with our leaders and experience the family-oriented atmosphere in the hallways of Rosarian Academy.

  • Step 2: Complete & Return Application for Admission & Application Fee

    Submit the electronic Application for Admission with the $125.00 application fee.

  • Step 3: Spend Quality Time With Us

    Prospective students are invited to spend extended time on campus. Early Childhood students visit the classrooms with their parent(s) for an hour. Incoming kindergarten students meet with the teachers. Students applying to grades 1st through 8th spend a day (or a half day) on our campus. Spending a day with us, also known as a Shadow Day, provides the opportunity to gain a firsthand experience of what life and learning is about at Rosarian Academy.

    What Does Spending a Day Encompass?

    • Interacting with other students
    • Observing and participating in classroom activities
    • Becoming acquainted with the facilities and activities offered at Rosarian
    • Completing our age-appropriate entrance evaluation.
    • Please note: Parents of visiting students are asked to complete a Visitor Release Form and bring it with them to their scheduled visit.
  • Step 4: Decision Process for Admission

    Prospects applying to 1st through 8th grade must accompany their application with the following requested materials:

    • A completed Teacher Recommendation form
    • If transferring from another school, the prospect is required to submit a receipt of transcript that includes official grades and standardized testing results from his or her present school.

    Upon receipt and completion of the above steps, all collected information is presented to the Admissions Committee. Applicants will be notified by letter of the decision of the Admissions Committee.

    Applications are accepted on an ongoing enrollment basis, until all positions are filled.
