It is important that both the student and the parent(s)/guardian(s) thoughtfully express in the application why they want the student to be considered for admission to La Salle.

Step 3: Transcripts

All high school transcripts are required to complete your applications.

After creating a SchoolAdmin account and submitting an application, use the Request Transcripts section of the portal to request your transcripts from your previous school(s). Note: Transfer applicants seeking admission to 10th grade may be asked to submit 7th and 8th grade transcripts as well.

Step 4: Teacher Recommendation

At least one teacher recommendation is required for transfer applicants. The recommender should be teaching (or have taught) the applicant in a core subject during the current academic year.

Transfer applicants should submit at least one letter of recommendation from a current teacher. Be sure to log in to your application portal to send the recommendation to your desired teacher.

Financial Aid Consideration

While we certainly strive to ensure we can assist all families with a demonstrated financial need, please know that financial aid is very limited for transfer applicants. Please feel free to submit an application for financial aid by visiting our Clarity Tuition financial aid application portal.

Disciplinary Record Disclosure

If you are exploring the possibility of transferring to La Salle, we ask that you please disclose any relevant disciplinary issues or concerns from the student's past/current school during the application process. Failure to do so may impact the admissions process and a final admissions decision.

Admission Process and Decisions

Once we have had the opportunity to review a transfer application, we will inform you about whether we will have your child 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, student/parent interview, and available space.
