K-12 Admission Guidelines
Our goal at Rosehill Christian School is to partner with families and lead children both spiritually and academically. We want to set up all of our students for success so there are several things that the admissions community considers when a student is applying.
Admissions for Rosehill Christian school is based on several factors.
- As a Covenant School, at least one parent must be a believer in the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ as defined in our Statement of Faith. The family must also be in regular attendance at a local church with a comparable Statement of faith.
- The candidate’s test scores must fall within accepted standards of mid-average to above-average IQ.
- Past performance is gathered from past standardized tests, report cards, and teacher recommendations.
- If all other parameters are at acceptable levels to the admissions committee, an interview will be scheduled with the family.
- Any student who has been expelled, assigned to an alternative education placement or who are presently suspended will NOT be eligible for enrollment at RCS.
- Openings are based upon available seats in each class. A waiting pool is created when all seats are taken in a class.
