The entry process for any of the Focus Programs offered at St. Rose is based on the criteria outlined in the application process documents. These criteria include: Standardized Test Results, Grade 6 Teacher Rating Scale, Grade 6 spring Report Card and the results of the entrance exam(s) that the student will be writing at St. Rose in the spring, prior to the Grade 7 school year. There is a cap of 33 students per class. If over the course of a student's time in an Accelerated Program the student is displaying difficulty with the curriculum, this will be addressed by the teacher and a determination will be made as to that student continuing in that Program. The Accelerated Programs do not allow for acceptance mid-way through.
