Dear Parents of St. Rose:

Thank you for choosing St. Rose School for your children. We appreciate the confidence you place in our school. We strive to provide the best education for your child including faith, service and academics.

We will be doing registration for the 2017-18 school year online again this year. Registration is now open and may be completed through the link on our school website at  We ask that all families please register by March 22. Registering earlier helps us better plan for our school budget for next year. You may choose to register at home from your own computer or iPad, or you may come to the school and our office staff can help you. There will be a $25 technology fee due at the time of registration. If you register at home, you may send a check to school with your student. Anyone completing registration by March 22, will receive a $50 credit on next year’s tuition.

After visiting our school website, click the Parent JMC access / Online registration link in the bottom left corner of the homepage. You will be directed to our JMC homepage. You will then enter your username and password, as shown below and follow the directions on the screen. 

We also ask all families who are eligible to fill out the Diocese of Sioux City Scholarship Application. Income guidelines for the scholarship are attached. This year, the application can only be filled out online at  There is also a link on our school website. This is a very important source of funding for our families and our school so we ask that all families who are eligible do apply. Any funds received from the Diocese of Sioux City Scholarship Fund will be applied to your family account. Local St. Rose scholarships are also available to families who fill out the Diocese of Sioux City application and the attached local scholarship application.

Tuition rates for the 2017-18 school year are listed below. Our budget committee and school board has approved a 3% increase in parent investment for next year, which amounts to approximately $50. St. Rose parish does cover a major portion of your child’s tuition.

2017 Full tuition cost per student- $4,400 (*Please use this figure on the scholarship app)

Less parish contribution - $2,716

2017 Cost to parents   $1,684

There will be a $25 technology fee at registration for all students to help cover the cost of the Chromebooks and iPads that will be used by all students. Scholarship funds will not cover this fee.

For families with more than one child in our school, we offer a multiple child discount of 5% for the second child, 10% for the third, etc. We also want to remind everyone of the New Family Referral credit. Any of our current families who refer a new family to St. Rose School will receive a $350 credit on their tuition statement for next school year. The new family must mention the referring family by name, and must enroll a student in our school for the 2017-18 school year. The $350 credit will be applied at second semester.

Thank you for your continued sacrifices to make St. Rose the best that it can be.


Rev. Paul Kelly and

Principal Patty Lansink
