  • Transfer Students

    Salpointe Catholic accepts a limited number of transfer students each year. All transfer students join at the beginning of the school year — we do not accept students mid-year or mid-semester.*

    Please note our Policy on the Admission of Students.  
    • Sophomore and Junior transfer applicants must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher with no F or D grades on their transcript.  Junior applicants are only admitted to the Fall semester.  Transfer students are accepted based on space and course availability.  In the case of a former student reapplying, the student and their parents may be required to meet with the Principal before beginning the readmission process.  We cannot guarantee admission.
    • Senior transfers are rare at Salpointe unless one is transferring from another Catholic High School out of the area, or, for students returning to Salpointe, or, as a result of a hardship (which is defined by Salpointe as an unforeseeable, unavoidable, and uncorrectable act, condition, or event, which causes the imposition of a severe and non-athletic burden upon the student or his/her family).
    Our Transfer Application Process for the 2024-2025 school year begins in February 2024.  Decisions are ideally made in mid-June but can occur as late as early August.  If you are interested in getting information for the 2024-2025 school year, CLICK HERE to be added to our mailing list. 

    *If you are moving from out of state mid-year with a job transfer, or have other special circumstances, please contact the Admissions Office for further discussion.
  • International Students

    International Student Transfer Admissions are closed for the 2024-2025 School Year.  If you are interested in getting information for the 2025-2026 school year, CLICK HERE to be added to our mailing list.

    Salpointe Catholic High School accepts a limited number of International Students each school year. International student's applications are reviewed by the school's Admissions Committee and are accepted based on their academic and English qualifications. International students may apply only for the beginning of a school year (Fall semester only, no Spring semester applications).

    International students must demonstrate strong English skills (TOEFL English proficiency exam required plus a Skype or Google Hangout interview is required) as all of the classes at SCHS are taught in English at an accelerated rate. The goal is to see all international students be successful at our academically rigorous school, hence the advanced English requirement.

    If the Student is Accepted, SCHS will process the I-20 application if the international student requires an I-20 to apply for an F-1 Student Visa in their home country.  The I-20 should take approximately 2 weeks to be received by our school.  Once our school receives the I-20, it will be express mailed to the student's family.  The I-20 may then be used to obtain the F-1 Student Visa in their home country.  Note: the I-20 cannot be requested by our school unless the name and address of the home-stay family are provided to our Admissions Office.
