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.
