Private tours and meetings with the Director of Recruitment & Enrollment can also be arranged.
  • Can my daughter be considered for admission if we are not Catholic or she attends a public grade school?

    Yes. Rosary admits and welcomes non-Catholic students. Our students come to Rosary from private and public schools and various faith communities (or no faith community) throughout a six-county area. All are welcome.
  • Our daughter is interested in Rosary. What is the first step?

    Our website contains a timeline and much of the information that you will need when applying to Rosary. If your daughter attends a Catholic grade school in the Aurora area, we will be visiting her school in the fall. If she attends public school or another private school, please make sure that you are on our mailing list. This can be done by submitting an Inquiry Form or contacting the Admissions Director.
  • Do I have to take a test to be admitted to Rosary as a freshman?

    Eighth graders seeking admission into Rosary High School must take the Scholastic Testing Service High School Placement Exam. This standard indicator and the information gathered from parents, teachers and grade school transcripts are used to determine acceptance to Rosary. 
  • We are considering several schools for our daughter, but see that the entrance exams are held on the same day. What should we do?

    Rosary gives priority admission and scholarship consideration to those girls who test at Rosary. This is the case with most other schools as well. So, even if you are not sure, take the exam at your first choice school. If you take the exam at another school, you may still submit the scores to us for consideration.
  • Can my daughter transfer in as a current high school student?

    Yes, transfer students from other high schools are considered for admission to Rosary. A screening process is used to ensure that the student`s former school record and reason for transfer are consistent with Rosary`s mission and goals. To discuss a possible transfer, please contact the Admissions Office at (630) 896-0831.
  • Do you offer financial aid?
