Transfer Students

We consider transfer applicants during certain times of the year:

  • Current freshmen and sophomores wanting to enroll for the start of our second semester (Thursday, January 4) are being considered between now and Friday, December 15.
  • Students wanting to transfer into DCHS for the 2018-2019 school year as a sophomore or junior will be considered starting Thursday, February 1.

Step #1: Student/Parent Meeting at DCHS

Parents of current freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to contact Matt Saxer, Director of Admissions, at 313-216-0891 x268 before completing any of the steps below.  Mr. Saxer is very willing to chat with potential transfer families regarding the application process, academic transcripts, athletic eligibility, and other items.  Family meetings are typically scheduled after school.  Students may bring unofficial transcripts to this meeting.

Our Application for Admission is submitted online for consideration.  Both the parent and student complete portions of our online application.

  • Students wanting to transfer for second semester entry (January 4) should apply by Friday, December 15.
  • Students wanting to transfer for the 2018-2019 school year should apply after Thursday, February 1.

Step #3: Academic Transcripts

Please submit a copy of your academic transcripts from the current and previous school years.  Transcripts should include academic grades from last year and this year, and standardized test scores.  Please note: some schools or districts will want to send these items directly to Divine Child.


Divine Child’s administration reviews transfer applications. It takes about one week for this review with decision letters mailed to applicants.  Preference is given to Catholic students throughout the admissions process.  Students accepted for admission pay the enrollment deposit and submit a registration form three weeks after acceptance.
