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 10th and 11th grade. We typically do not accept senior transfers who are coming from public schools because these students do not have the religion classes and thus cannot 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 transfer students begins in early March with all application materials due on May 26, 2017. Decisions are ideally made in June but can occur as late as early August. Please contact the Admissions Office in mid-March for an online application. 

*If you are moving from out of state mid-year with a job transfer, or have an unusual situation, please contact the Office of Admissions for more information.

List of 2 frequently asked questions.

  • Q To which grade levels can a transfer student apply?

    To transfer, an applicant must have taken a college preparatory course of studies and have maintained a minimum grade point average of 3.2 or higher during his high school year(s). Brophy accepts transfer applications for students entering 10th and 11th grade.
  • Q How soon will a transfer student know if he has been accepted?

    Notification to students who have been accepted can begin as early as June and be as late as the first week of August. Because decisions may be made as late as August 1, 2017, we strongly suggest you register your son at another high school while you are waiting to hear from Brophy.
