an AC Transfer StudentMeet the Community
We strongly encourage students to transfer at the beginning of the second marking period (early November) or at the beginning of the second semester (last week of January). These times allow for the smoothest transition for a new student.
It is a three-step process: submit the completed application found on our webpage; have your current school send us an official high school transcript along with a complete discipline/attendance report and teacher/counselor recommendation; and schedule an interview with the Admissions Office.
Once a potential transfer student has submitted all items listed above and has had an interview, the Admissions Office will offer a shadow day so the student can get a true sense of what a typical day at Arlington Catholic is like.
We will look at your academic performance, your discipline/attendance report, and the types of courses you are currently taking. Part of deciding upon transfer applicants is making sure that AC is the right fit for you, so grade size, class size and offerings are closely considered.
Changing schools is a big decision that requires a good deal of thought; AC will give you two weeks to come to a final decision about transferring.
AC does accept transfers over the summer; except for the shadow day, all the other application steps are the same.
We do not, unless a student is moving to this area from out of state.
No- we will focus on your high school career. If there are standardized results from your high school years, you may submit them if you wish.
