Graduation Requirements



Becoming a St. Rose Graduate



Academic requirements for admission exist for certain courses at St. Rose High School. No student may take a course without fulfilling these qualifications. Because the school schedules for a school year in the previous spring, the student's first semester marks determine placement for the following year. Placement rests on past performance and, in some cases, standardized testing. See the 2018-19 Course Selection Guide for greater detail and course descriptions.
