Transferring to Brophy

Brophy 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.*

We accept a limited number of students at the start of the 10th and 11th grades. We typically do not accept senior transfers who are coming from public schools because these students have not had the religious studies classes necessary to meet our graduation requirements. The number of transfer students accepted is based on the number of spots available once our current students have registered for the new academic year. 

The application process for students wishing to transfer to Brophy for 2022-23 begins Monday, March 7, 2022, with all application materials due in early May. Decisions are ideally made in mid-June but can occur as late as early August. Please contact the Admissions Office in early March 2022 for an online application username and password if you are interested in joining us for the 2022-23 school year.

*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.

Please note: This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.

Steps to Apply

  1. Complete and submit an online application. Applications will be available on March 7, 2022. Please call the admissions office first for a username and password to access the application. 
  2. Complete all screens of the online application, including your personal statement. Upon completion of the application, you will be prompted to pay the $80 application fee. If you applied to Brophy last year, you do not need to pay another application fee. Call the admissions office to get a waiver code. If your family requires financial assistance (verified), you can also call our office for a waiver code.
  3. Using the online application portal and checklist, request the five required recommendation forms and student discipline information report from the appropriate faculty member, administrator or mentor, via email. The Pastor/Minister/Faith Leader recommendation form is optional. 
  4. Request your transcripts using the Transcript Request Form which must be downloaded and printed from the checklist. Give the printed form to your school’s registrar.
  5. Create a personal admissions video using a smartphone, tablet or computer. Video file formats that work are typically .mov or .mp4. The maximum file size for uploading is 100MB. If your file is larger than that, you must share it with us in an email using a link to Google Drive, iCloud or Dropbox. Please note the following guidelines:
    a)    The maximum final length is two minutes.
    b)    Be authentic and genuine — and have fun! We want the video to reflect who you are and what you love to do. There are no right or wrong answers.
    c)    Videos will not be evaluated for production quality; however, make sure that you are visible and audible during your video. Check the lighting and listen to your video after you have recorded it to ensure you are happy with the final product before submitting it.
    d)    We recommend that you dress casually as you would for a school day or school event. 
    e)    Tell us about yourself using these guidelines: Your video should begin with "Hi, my name is (insert name) from (high school) and I am in (insert grade)." After that, answer these two questions, forming your responses clearly and thoughtfully.
    1. What experiences have you had, and what attributes do you have, that will make you a successful Brophy Bronco?
    2. What does being a Man for Others mean to you?
    f) You will upload the video file directly to the checklist in myBrophy by clicking on the UPLOAD button. Please be patient — it can take up to several minutes for a large video file to upload to the portal. Make sure you click "save" after it uploads. You may want to use a video compression program before you upload it, which will make it smaller, so the upload is quicker. Your video will only be viewed by the Admissions Committee.
  6. Have a virtual personal interview with the Admissions Office. We typically do these in late April and early May. Please call our office to set up an appointment. Interviews last approximately 20 minutes and will be done via Zoom. 
The due date for the submission/completion of the online application, recommendation forms, transcripts, admissions video and personal interview is May 2, 2022.
