We live in a global society, and our students benefit from getting to know other students from around the world. We regularly enroll international students to give Roselle Catholic that desired diversity. This year we have twenty-five international students, from Gabon and Senegal in Africa to China and Vietnam in Asia. We expect to add additional international students in the years to come. We are advised in this effort by a faculty alumnus, Patrick Gallagher, one of RC’s first faculty members, who meets on a regular basis with our international students to assist them with their English skills.

Special Needs Accommodations
Roselle Catholic lends support to those of our students with special learning needs. Some of them take our Focus Room class as one of their seven regularly scheduled periods every day. There, in a small class setting usually limited to eight students, they benefit from the attention of a certified Special Education teacher and an instructional aid, who provide instruction in those areas deemed most important for the student. Other students receive Supplemental Compensatory Instruction in Language Arts and/or Mathematics, for one or two class periods per week.
Our Guidance Department closely monitors the progress of our students with special needs, and helps the classroom teachers modify instruction to ensure those needs are addressed.
