Transfer Candidates

St. Joseph's Prep welcomes qualified transfer candidates who have at least a "B" average (or comparative numerical scores) and receive an outstanding recommendation from a recent Math, English, or equivalent teacher. Where necessary, subject tests will be administered prior to an admission decision for students considering a transfer into the Prep to ensure potential class-level placement.

Please note: the Prep transfer process considers students entering into the fall semester of 10th or 11th grade.


Items needed to complete a transfer application can be found on the applicant checklist by logging into your portal.

I can't believe how fast the junior year is flying by for Jacob and how much he is enjoying it. Transferring to the Prep was the best decision we ever made."
