Admissions: Transfer Students

Transfer Students

St. Francis Preparatory School accepts transfer students every August at the start of the academic year and in January at the start of our second semester. We accept students from 9th, 10th, and 11th grades. We typically do not accept senior transfers.

To transfer, an applicant must have maintained a minimum grade point average of 80 or higher during his or her previous school year(s).

The number of students accepted is based on the number of spots available once our current students have registered for the new academic year. Students who are accepted will not start school immediately.
