Preschool Mission

The preschool at Holy Rosary strives, through Catholic principles, to create a loving, learning environment that will allow the students to grow and develop their faith, knowledge, sense of responsibility, respect for self and others, and ability to communicate thoughts and feelings.

Holy Rosary School admits students of any race, color or national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to all students at the school. In the administration of its policies, the school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan, and athletic and other administered programs.

Admission Considerations
  • Priority will be given to preschool applicants, that meet the age criteria, of parish families or have siblings already enrolled in Holy Rosary School (Sept. 15th-Nov. 15th Priority Application Window).
  • Attending the preschool program is advantageous when applying for the Holy Rosary K-8 program.
  • Child must be toilet-trained before the start of the school year.
  • We encourage the participation of non-Catholic and/or out-of-parish families.
Admission Process

We accept applications on a rolling admissions basis. Once submitted, applicants who submit before Nov. 15th should expect a response by mid-December, any applications received after November will receive a response after 3-4 weeks. When spots are filled, incoming applications are put on a wait list.

A family will receive registration paperwork once they are accepted. Completing the registration paperwork and paying the registration fee secures the student’s placement for the fall. A non-refundable registration fee of $200 per child is due with the registration paperwork.
