Transferring to Xavier

We will begin reviewing transfer applicants for sophomore or junior years in early 2024 for enrollment in the fall of 2024. 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 and to Xavier's mission.

With rare exceptions, transfer applicants to 10th grade must provide at least one recent standardized test score in order to be considered for admissions. If a student applying for 10th grade 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:

Tuition Assistance Policy for Transfer Students

Xavier does not offer any merit scholarships to transfer applicants. In limited circumstances, we will consider transfer students for a small amount of need-based tuition assistance for the first year of enrollment. Parents/guardians should be prepared to pay the full tuition cost, set for 2024-2025 at $25,200. A $1,850 deposit is due online as part of the registration process. That includes a $300 registration fee and $1,550 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

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.
