Transfer Student Process
Admissions Process for Non-Feeder School and Transfer Applicants
Students who are not currently enrolled in a diocesan parish grade school, attend another high school or are new to the diocese are considered transfer students. We consider transfer students for admission on a case-by-case basis. Our Admissions Committee meets on a regular basis to review applications.
To be considered for admission to KMC, please submit the following items in a single envelope and mail/deliver to Veronica Hill. Applicants will not be considered until all items are submitted.
- Completed Application Form
- $150 Application Fee (checks made payable to Kapaun Mt. Carmel)
- Completed Student Survey
- Most Recent Transcript
- Current Schedule of Courses and Grades
After we receive these items, we will contact you to schedule an interview. Your student will complete an introductory interview with an administrator and counselor.
Following your interview, our Admissions Committee will review your application to finalize a decision. Acceptance can be issued contingent upon health updates, immunizations and completion of any other mandates (final semester grades, probationary status acceptance, behavioral contract) if needed.
If a shadow day would be helpful in your decision-making process, your student may spend a half or full day with a current KMC student. Your shadow day can be for the entire length of our school day (7:50 am - 3:00 pm), or for a half day, to be released around lunchtime. We will set up shadow visits on most Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, beginning September 15, through May 10. Due to schedule disruptions, programs or other interruptions to a normal school day, we will reserve some days as non-shadow days.
When you arrive for your shadow visit, we will introduce you to an ambassador student, who will be your host for your shadow day. You will not be allowed to participate in P.E., but you will be an active participant in other classes. You will be able to enjoy lunch with our students in our fantastic cafeteria. The cost of your lunch will be about $5.00, and you will be able to pay at the register in the lunch line.
