Transfer to Saint Mary's

The transfer application will not open until March 25, 2022. Transfer student applications for the 10th and 11th grades will be considered on a case-by-case basis depending on space availability at the grade level requested. Saint Mary’s does not accept 12th grade transfers. Transfers for the fall of 2022 will be informed of the admission decision between April and May of 2022, after the incoming freshman admissions process has been completed.


Students applying for admission to Saint Mary’s College High School as a transfer student in grade 10 or 11 must be in good academic and disciplinary standing at their current school pursuing a college preparatory curriculum, with no D’s or F’s (verification will be required.).
