We welcome transfer applications for our sophomore and junior classes on a space-available basis. St. Francis High School does not accept senior transfers unless they are coming from another Catholic high school or are moving from out of state.
Prospective transfer students are strongly encouraged to attend a Shadow Day on the St. Francis campus. Please click here for more details and to sign up for a shadow day.
A complete application for transfer admission consists of the following: (1) Online application for admission, (2) Academic Record Report (transcripts and standardized test scores), (3) Principal, English and Math Recommendation Forms, and (4) Student/Parent Interview.
1. Application for Admission
The online application has sections for both parents and the student to complete. There is a $50 application fee. When completing the application for admission you will create a login that you will use to access your online parent portal for all the other steps in the admissions process. After submitting the application, please wait 24 hours for the application to process, then log in and proceed to Step 2.
2. Academic Record Request
Please download and print the Academic Record Request form, complete your information, and sign for the release of transcripts and standardized test scores. Give the completed and signed form to your daughter’s current school to complete and submit to St. Francis High School.
3. Recommendation Forms: Principal, Math, English
After obtaining the email addresses for the applicant’s Principal, Math teacher, and English teacher, sign on to the parent portal and submit the recommendation form to each recommender.
4. Student-Parent Interview
All applicants, accompanied by at least one parent, will participate in an admissions interview. The interviews last approximately 15-20 minutes and will be arranged once the transfer application is complete. The interview can be combined with a campus tour.
If you have questions about the transfer process, please contact Director of Enrollment Management Lisa Wilkins at (916) 737-5095 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
