Admissions Process

Admissions Criteria

St. Rose of Lima School in Franklin offers a Catholic education for students of St. Rose Parish and our “sister” parish of Holy Trinity in Edinburgh. These parishioners have the first opportunity to enroll their children. When space provides, Non-Catholic students whose parents’ philosophies are consistent with those of our parish and faith may apply for admittance into the school.
