St. Joseph's Prep welcomes qualified transfer candidates who have at least a "B +" average (or comparative numerical scores) and receive an outstanding recommendation from a recent Math, English, or equivalent teacher. Where necessary, subject tests will be administered before an admission decision for students considering a transfer into the Prep to ensure potential class-level placement.
The transfer portal for current 9th and 10th graders looking to start at the Prep in Fall 2024 is now open.

I can't believe how fast the junior year is flying by for Jacob and how much he is enjoying it. Transferring to the Prep was the best decision we ever made."
