St. Joseph High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, and/or national or ethnic origin.
Transfer applications are usually considered in the summer. Applications and transcripts for transfer students must be received no later than two weeks before the school year begins.
Freshman and sophomore year students may be considered for transfer at the start of the second semester (usually in mid-January), if their application and transcripts have been received by the second week of January. Junior year students will be considered at the start of their junior year only; juniors are not considered for transfer mid-year. We do not accept senior transfers from the local area. Applicants will only be considered if there is space available in that grade level and in the appropriate academic program.
You may apply online using the link to the right. Any questions you have may be directed to the Admissions Office at (203) 378-9378, x 308.
Return the completed application to SJHS, either online or by printing off your application and mailing it.
A parent or guardian must sign the release form at the bottom of the personal profile. Bring the recommendation form to your current high school. A guidance counselor from the current school and a teacher from the school must complete this form. The Guidance Department must have the completed form with the signed release in order to have your transcripts sent to SJHS. Transcripts include all of the following:
- A copy of the final grade report card for all years at the current school.
- The most current standardized testing results
- Completed recommendation forms from a guidance counselor, English teacher, and Math teacher.
Release forms are included in all transfer applications. Once this information has been received, an interview will be requested by the Admissions Office. The interview will involve the applicant and his or her parent(s), the Vice Principal, and the Director of Admissions.
You will be notified by mail of the admission decision.
If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Peggy Marino '71, Director of Admissions.
International Transfer Applicants
In addition to everything above, international students also need recommendation forms from their English and Math teachers. A release form and the recommendation forms are available. The application fee for International applicants is $100.
