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. Mid-year transfers for students currently in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade are considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Admission Office directly for more information.
The transfer process for the 2019-2020 school year is now closed. If you have any questions, please call 215-978-1958 to speak with an Admissions Counselor.
The official Transfer Application Process for the 2020-2021 school year begins February 2020. The Transfer Applicant Timeline can be found below. NOTE: All transfer candidates must visit the Prep for an interview with a member of the Admissions staff. The best way to do that is at the end of a HAWKLIFE Shadow Visit. Transfer candidates can sign up for a visit at www.sjprep.org/visit. Transfer candidates are more than welcome to visit in the Fall 2019 in preparation for the applicant process that begins in February.
