Why You Belong at Roycemore

At Roycemore, we see each student as an individual, and this is demonstrated through our personalized, enthusiastic, and empathetic approach to the Admissions process. 

During the Admissions process, we focus on the whole child – their strengths and how Roycemore’s academic, social, and extracurricular offerings align with supporting the growth of that individual student. When students are being considered for admission, Roycemore’s Portrait of a Graduate, which focuses on the essential skills that students develop throughout their education at Roycemore in the areas of Scholarship, Citizenship, and Emotional Intelligence is an important mechanism to understand how the prospective student can positively contribute to the Roycemore community.

Roycemore prides itself on meeting students where they are, accepting them for who they are, and differentiating learning experiences to help them reach their full potential. Roycemore is proud to be the most diverse independent high school in Illinois, and highly ranked for overall experience, academics, faculty, and extracurricular opportunities. At Roycemore, 100% of students are accepted to colleges and universities across the country and around the world – from small liberal arts schools to engineering schools, large public institutions, and Ivy League schools.

As Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, my priority is building relationships with families and those relationships are at the core of what makes the Roycemore community so special. It is my goal to make the admissions process as seamless as possible for families while making sure that the best interest of the student is always at the center of decision making. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about how you can become an important member of the Roycemore learning community. We hope you will feel comfortable to ask us questions at any step along the way.
