Transfer Information

Transfer Policy: 

  • Schedule a tour
  • Submit a completed application including:
    • Student profile
    • Teacher recommendation from a current teacher of a core subject
    • SCA supplement
    • All high school report cards, standardized test scores, and all pertinent records
  • Schedule a family interview with the Admissions Office and/or Principal
  • Submit an IEP or 504 plan if your student has one currently in place
  • A GPA of 3.0 or higher (some exceptions may apply)
  • Submit all current health appraisals prior to admittance
  • Transfers must take place by the first week of the second semester (some exceptions may apply)

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.

Families with additional questions should contact the Catholic League office at 313-237-5960.

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

SCA Parent

“This high school experience is like none other you can get anywhere. There is joy and comradery and the girls are happy and excel. They are being supported and encouraged by staff. You can watch a girl come in who had a bad experience elsewhere, bloom here and become a different girl in a short time. Can’t say enough good about it. Thank God the founders had this vision and followed through with it. Well needed and we are very thankful!”

SCA Parent

“A crazy amount of extra curricular options-basically if you are passionate about it [SCA] will find a way to help you bring it to fruition!”

Leighanne

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

Chrissy

“Another thing I enjoyed about the school was the athletics. I played four different sports at this school and I had the same experience with all of them. The coaches really cared about me, not just how well I was performing and I was treated respectfully on and off the court. Further more, I felt that I was really being pushed physically and mentally during practice which I value in any activity.”

Alumna

“This school is not only college prep, it is life prep. I know that my daughter is being educated to go out and make a positive difference in the world. She will graduate with the confidence and courage to lead wherever she goes in life. I love the principal, the teachers, and the families. It is such a blessing to be a part of the SCA Family. I know the friends my daughter has made will be her sisters for life.”

SCA Parent

“I have been very impressed with the teachers at this school. They both challenge the girls academically and show true concern for them on a personal level as well.”

SCA Parent

“An excellent community for families that want to stay involved! Everyone has a different opinion and all students, staff, and faculty are respectful of it. I have never been in an environment that was so inviting and welcoming. It is easy to find a home in this school because the staff genuinely care about you and want you to succeed. It really is a beautiful place and a great experience. I am very lucky to have gone through high school there.”

Alumna

“I was among one of the very first classes SCA ever had. As a pioneer and a student to be a part of the foundation of clubs and classes that continue today, I am beyond proud of how far the school has come. There were many ups and downs during my four years but an amazing experience overall. Today at college I still look back on and cherish my times at SCA, thankful for the connections, education and sisterhood I acquired. I am looking forward to seeing many more young women carry on the traditions my class and recent classes have set for the future.”

Alumna, Class of '14

You receive a spiritual hug when you walk through the door at St. Catherine of Siena Academy. Christ is at the center and He is opening up His arms saying “these are your friends, this is your family.” – Erika, SCA Alumnae
