Transfer Students

We welcome students at any stage in their journey.

Families relocate. Circumstances change. And sometimes a new plan is the right choice. Some of our most successful students have transferred to De Smet Jesuit as sophomores, juniors, and even seniors. 

It's not too late.

We work with high school students throughout the school year to ensure you are where you belong.

My Experience as a Transfer Student

  • Class of 2022
Seth Marcione '22

When transferring to De Smet, I did not know what to expect. As a military kid I have been to several different schools throughout elementary, middle, and high school. De Smet was my first private and all-boy school I have ever attended. I am super grateful for our faculty and my classmates on making my transition smooth. I could not have asked for a better support group that De Smet possesses.

I was a little nervous about considering a transfer. Spending a day on campus helped me get a feel for the school—my tour guide walked me around after school, and I got to meet a few teachers. They made me feel welcome and at ease with my decision.

We'd like to meet you!

Our favorite introductions happen face-to-face on campus where we can show off our students, teachers, Innovation Center, athletic fields, and active learning classrooms.
