Transfer Student Application Process


Transfer Students
Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart invites qualified applicants with a current grade point average of at least 85 percent to apply for admission as a transfer student. Acceptance is on a rolling basis.

Step - 1
Take a tour of SHA. Individual tours are offered throughout the year, take approximately one hour, and occur during the school day. To arrange a tour, contact the Admissions Office at 834-2101 ext. 311.

Step - 2
Arrange a Shadow Day to see SHA in action on a typical Academy day. You will be paired with a student in the same grade (either someone you request or who shares similar interests with you) and attend her classes, go to lunch, and meet her teachers and friends. The Director of Admissions and/or a member of the Guidance Office will also meet with transfer applicants.  Please note:  Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, Shadow Days have been suspended until further notice. 

Step - 3
Apply to SHA by submitting:
  • Transfer Application
  • Two recommendations: one from a school counselor, one from either a current math or English teacher. Please download this form.
  • Transcript of grades from the previous three years, including any standardized testing, report cards, and HSPT test results (if applicable)

Prospective transfer students must submit all requested documentation to be considered for acceptance. A family may also apply for financial aid during the application process.

Step - 4
Notice of Acceptance & Financial Aid will be mailed to qualified applicants on a rolling basis.

Step - 5
Register for classes. A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to register within two weeks of acceptance.

Step - 6
Attend Transfer Orientation.
