Transfer students must have an official transcript on file with SMA prior to enrolling. A student with 7 transferable credits is designated as a sophomore. A student with 13 transferable credits is designated as a junior.

SMA only accepts senior transfers when a family moves into the area.

Please contact Director of Admissions, Colin Karr, at with any questions throughout the transfer process.

Admissions Step 1 • Apply for Admittance

A prospective family must first apply for admittance HERE.

Please note: applications will not be considered until all pertinent documents have been received *directly* from the student’s previous school. Please print, complete, and turn in a Records Request Form to the Registrar or records-manager of the student’s current school to ensure his/her records are sent to SMA in a timely manner. (The form may be found HERE.)

Admissions Step 2 • Participate in an SMA “Guardian for a Day”

All students must take part in a Guardian for a Day. Sign up HERE.

During the Summer, families can sign up for a tour of SMA HERE.

Admissions Step 3 • Admissions Interview for Transferring Students

Once the prospective student’s previous school’s records have been received, you will be contacted to set up an appointment with our administration team. This is to identify and address the needs of each student and family and to foster an open and productive partnership with our families. The academic interview is an opportunity for our staff to meet each prospective student and family and to ensure that our environment is the best fit for each student.

Admissions Step 4 • Administration Review

The SMA Administrative Team will review records from the candidate’s previous school including but not limited to the student’s current transcript. Our administration will also correspond with the student’s current school to assist in the evaluation of the prospective student’s profile. These records will be evaluated and the student’s admissions interview will be discussed regarding acceptance. Our administration will review and share the results of the application with the family.

Admissions Step 5 • Admissions Conference and Registration

Assuming acceptance, the Director of Admissions will reach out to the prospective family for an Admissions Conference. This conference will include discussing various requirements associated with attending St. Michael, signing the tuition contract and paying the associated registration fee, selecting classes, and completing registration for your family’s PowerSchool account, our student-tracking system.

Before enrolling in classes, our business office will collect a signed tuition contract along with a non-refundable registration fee of $350. The registration fee is used to fund items needed for the upcoming school year and is our way of gauging family commitment. This helps us project our community’s needs and best plan and acquire resources for the upcoming year.

At this point, your child will be considered registered as a St. Michael the Archangel student.
