When a student is admitted to St. Catherine’s, we utilize all available resources to maximize their chances of success. We welcome individuals of all faiths and backgrounds, and we promote diversity and respect within our community.
Our enrollment process differs between current Siena Catholic Schools (SCS) students and students new to Siena Catholic Schools. Locate the Admissions Checklist that applies to your child(ren) below.

TRANSFER STUDENT POLICY
We welcome transfer students in all grade levels; however, St. Catherine’s upholds a strict transfer policy. If the minimum requirements are not met, students may be invited for an interview with academic administration and the Admissions Director for final consideration.
All students wishing to apply are required to have a minimum of a 2.0 grade point average from their current school, along with a good attendance and disciplinary record. St. Catherine’s upholds the suspensions and expulsions of other schools. Students with expulsions will not be admitted to St. Catherine’s. No transfers will be allowed during a student’s senior year, including out-of-town transfers.
As a transfer student, please be aware of the WIAA rules for athletic eligibility.
