FORWARD THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO SAINT MARY’S
Once your transfer application has been successfully submitted, please send the following information to Saint Mary’s at [email protected] or via fax to 510.559.6277 Attn: Cherisse Payne:

EVALUATION BY THE DIRECTOR OF ADMISSIONS
Once the Director of Admissions has had an opportunity to review and evaluate the transfer application and academic information, the family will be contacted via email with an assessment. The assessment will address whether or not the applicant has completed and earned sufficient academic achievement to qualify them to fulfill our graduation requirements. No evaluation for admission will be considered unless and until both the transfer application and academic information has been received.
- If the evaluation is positive, the applicant will be asked make an appointment for a student interview, and obtain current teacher recommendations.
