A student desiring to transfer to SCA must have a completed student profile and an acceptable academic record that aligns with SCA’s curriculum and standards. While academic performance is extremely important in the acceptance process at SCA, the reported character of a student by her school, and family interview holds significant weight in the decision making process.

SCA maintains a strong emphasis on the spiritual, academic, physical, and social well being of every student. A transfer student should possess a keen desire to grow in wisdom and understanding in all of these areas and in discovering her feminine genius. When all of the above has been taken into consideration a student’s acceptance or nonacceptance is a discretionary decision made by the Administration of St. Catherine of Siena Academy. Upon acceptance, all transfer students will be on a ninety-day probationary period.

Transfer applications for the 2020-2021 school year are processed in the online application portal alongside those for incoming freshmen. If SCA is the only school you plan to apply to, click here for instructions on using the application portal.

“This high school builds the whole young woman intellectually, spiritually, and teaches the feminine genius approach to life. Amen!”

Chrissy

“An excellent school that brings the girls together more like sisters rather than friends.”

Zina

“An excellent community for families that want to stay involved!”

Leighanne

“My family has had an excellent experience at this school so far. Beyond the beautiful new facility, I have been impressed with the teachers and the administration! They challenge the girls both academically and spiritually, they know them by name, and appear to have a genuine concern for each individual student. The school really feels like a family. As a parent, it is a blessing to me to know that my daughter is in such good hands when I drop her off everyday.”

SCA Parent

“SCA proves you can educate young women to both get into Heaven and Harvard!”

SCA Parent

“This school has a very strong faith atmosphere! The school is fairly new, but is starting to build a name for itself both spiritually and academically. The faculty and staff rock!”

Student, Class of '19

“The community service, the focus on virtuous living, and the sisterhood really instills compassion and respect for all of humanity.”

SCA Parent

“This place (SCA) is about the best Catholic high school you can go to, in my opinion. The whole school isn’t just a school, but a family where everybody knows everybody. It’s a small enough school for that to be possible-and it’s really awesome! What makes SCA different is the people that make up the SCA family. There are no bullies and no one is mean to you. Everybody looks out for you and your teachers become friends….This place is really close to my heart.”

Alumna, Class of '12

“Recently attended an event at this school – very beautiful!”

Kenneth

“The school lives up to their mission statement by unlocking the feminine genius in the girls who go there and providing us with the opportunity to discover who we are meant to be.”
