Transferring to Xavier

We will begin reviewing transfer applicants for sophomore or junior years starting in early spring 2022 for enrollment in the fall of 2022. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. 

We will consider all applicants to 10th grade, provided we have space available. We generally only consider applicants to 11th grade who currently attend a Jesuit or Catholic high school. We generally do not accept mid-year transfers or 12th grade transfers.    

A typical transfer student will have a 90 average or above with no grade lower than a “B” and a demonstrated commitment to co-curricular programs.

With rare exceptions, all transfer applicants must provide at least one recent standardized test score in order to be considered for admissions. If a student applying for sophomore year does not have a standardized test score, he will need to take the HSPT.

To apply for transfer admission and create an active file at Xavier, please see below to complete all of the steps:

Financial Aid Policy for Transfer Students

Xavier does not offer any merit scholarships to transfer applicants nor will it consider transfer students for need-based financial aid for the first year of enrollment. Parents/guardians are responsible for the full tuition cost, set for 2022-2023 at $22,260, an increase of 5% from the 2021-2022 tuition of $21,200. A $1,500 deposit is due online as part of the registration process. That includes a $250 registration fee and $1,250 in advance tuition.

For more information about transferring to Xavier, please call our Admissions Office at 212-924-7900, ext. 1442, or email us at admissions@xavierhs.org.

Admission Process and Decisions

Once we have reviewed a transfer application, we will inform you whether your son will proceed to the next step, which includes an interview with select members of our Admissions team.  Decisions will be made on a rolling basis based on the applicant's online application, academic transcript, teacher recommendation, standardized test scores, interview, and available space.
