 Step 1: Complete An Application

Apply Now allows you to create an online account to apply as a transfer student to Tampa Catholic for the 2021-22 school year and submit the $50.00 (non-refundable) application fee.

  • Please save your log-in information as you will use this to enroll/register your student. You will be provided a confirmation email, a copy of the transfer affidavit and a request for records.

 Step 2:  Request For Records

  • Transfer students must be on track to graduate from Tampa Catholic.
  • Students who have documented special needs must provide the complete results of a psychological-educational evaluation (within the last 3 years).  Please fax or email the information to the Admissions Office.  Information is confidential.
  • After the required records and transfer affidavit are received, an Admissions Committee reviews the applicant's file and makes the final decision on admissions.

 Step 3: Notice Of Admissions Status

Admissions Department will send notification of admission status via email after the Admissions Committee review.
 

When a transfer applicant receives an acceptance letter to Tampa Catholic High School, he or she will also receive instructions for online enrollment/registration, as well as tuition and financial aid information.
