Enrollment

Thank you for your interest in Our Lady of the Rosary School Inc. We hope this information will help you to make a sound and lasting decision regarding the education and formation of your children. If you have any additional questions after reading this material, please feel free to contact us by phone, fax, email, or surface mail.

We offer two types of programs:


1. Curriculum Program

This program offers enrollment in Our Lady of the Rosary School Inc, all text books, teachers manuals, workbooks, lesson plans and exams. Quarterly exams, book reports and any creative work asked for in the lesson plans and submitted to the school will be corrected and graded by our qualified staff of teachers. Report cards are issued at the completion of each quarter’s work. Diplomas are awarded for completion of the kindergarten, eighth grade and high school programs. Honor roll certificates are awarded to those students who excel in their work. Grade maintenance and retention are provided, so transcripts will be available for transfers and entrance into college. The Curriculum Program provides everything you need to give your child a superior Catholic education at home, and it also includes the assistance of teachers and counselors to make your homeschooling experience as enjoyable and successful as possible.

2: Consumable Curriculum Program

(for parents teaching a pre-purchased grade to younger children).

Our Lady of the Rosary School Inc requires that all books and lesson plans be returned to the school at the completion of the school year. However, families with younger children may retain this material as long as they feel it is necessary, in order to teach their younger children. We do ask that you only retain this material for use by children of the family that originally purchased the curriculum. In this way, we can work together to help reduce your homeschooling costs. This program is designed to make it possible for you to purchase only what you need to teach your other children, and it can provide a significant yearly savings to families with more than one child.

 Although much of the retained curriculum can be used to teach younger brothers and sisters, some materials (such as workbooks, exams, lesson planners, etc.) are consumable by their nature and are not reusable. These will have to be replaced if you are going to teach the same grade to a younger family member. The Consumable Curriculum Program was designed to replace only these consumable materials and to pass the savings on to you. Only the original purchaser of the Curriculum Program for that grade will qualify for the Consumable Curriculum Program.

Enrollment Commonly Asked Questions

Are there any discounts if I enroll in Our Lady of the Rosary School?

PAYMENT IN FULL

You will receive a $20.00 discount per grade for grades 1- 12.

MULTIPLE CHILDREN FAMILIES

Our Lady of the Rosary believes in helping large families to educate their children. We have built into our pricing structure an incremental discount for families of 2 or more children.

CONSUMABLE PROGRAMS

Another OLRS benefit designed for families educating more than one child is OLRS’s policy of allowing families with younger children to retain the curriculum packages purchased for their older children to be used to teach their younger children. In other words, if you purchase a fifth grade curriculum and you have several younger children, then you may use the same curriculum with them instead of having to purchase another fifth grade curriculum. Our “Consumable Program” allows you to purchase only what you need so that you may reuse your previously purchased curriculum for your younger children. This amounts to a tremendous savings each year and an even greater one when you consider how many years you will be homeschooling.

What is a consumable packet?

Consumable packets

are available for families who have previously purchased curriculum for that particular grade. Consumable packets consist of all the material that is designed for one time use during a school year that cannot be used by another child in the original family. This would include examinations, workbooks, lesson plans, grade sheets, etc. There are two different plans for consumable packets:

Full consumable program

means that the student is registered and receives all grading services from OLRS.

Consumable program

only means that the student is not registered with OLRS and the student does not re-ceive any grading services. Prices for the Consumable program only is not listed in this Enrollment Handbook and you will need to contact the office for prices.

What is a math or course fee?

It is a fee that has been added to help offset the cost of offering a particular course to our students. The cost of some textbooks have reached record numbers. Rather than raise the tuition price and have all families pay we have added the fee to those who choose to take the particular courses. See shipping list for subjects with additional fees.

Are there any individual registration fees for students?

No, student registration fees are included in the tuition fees and are good for a full year. However, there is an annual Family Registration fee of $25.00.

What is the family registration fee?

The family registration fee covers the cost of processing new curriculum orders for the student, recording and maintaining the student’s information in our computer system and any correspondence the school may have with your family starting the new school year. It is a yearly fee that covers each family for the entire school year.

When may I enroll?

Our Lady of the Rosary School maintains an “Open Enrollment Policy” meaning you may enroll any time you wish for the current school year or the next school year. It is a good idea to register as early as you can to ensure arrival of your curriculum before the school year starts.

Who pays the postage for quarterly exams and lessons?

Students pay to send their lessons and exams to the school. Our Lady of the Rosary School pays to return them to the student when they have been corrected, and the grades have been recorded.

Does OLRS offer any extended payment plans?

Yes, please see our policy and payment schedule form for details. Beyond the plans listed, we also have other customized plans to help families on any budget.

What is included in the High School Tuition Fee?

This fee includes several costs. First, it includes the extended evaluation by our qualified counselor of a student’s incoming/running transcript, as well as monitoring and assisting the student with course selection for advancement and college preparation. The fee also contributes to the creation and maintenance of the high school academic record and transcript. It helps to further develop new and expanded high school courses. Lastly, it covers the cost of any letters of recommendation written by our teachers that may be needed for entrance to college.

Are there any Shipping and handling charges for curriculum?

Yes, please see our policy and payment schedule form. For Alaska, Hawaii and foreign countries, the fee will be actual shipping based on the method chosen by the family.
