Transfer Student Application for Our School in Paramus, New Jersey
Paramus Catholic High School is a college-preparatory, co-educational high school in Paramus, New Jersey within the Archdiocese of Newark. We offer a well-rounded education that's grounded in faith-based values. Taking a personalized, community-focused approach to learning, our curriculum includes over 140 courses, many of which are honors and AP level. We welcome transfer students transitioning to our school from other districts and strive to help make the admissions process as smooth as possible.
Transfer Student Application Process
Students are accepted annually. However, transfer students are not admitted into senior year. Exceptions to this rule would mean approval by our principal due to extenuating circumstances. Admissions approval is determined according to our most current standards. Archdiocesan Co-op test scores, academic records, and recommendations are taken into account during the decision-making process.
The primary steps for students to transfer to Paramus Catholic High School include:
Step 1: Register Online
Create an online account with our school to begin. If you already have an account because another child in your household is a student, you may log in with your current credentials. Please note that school accounts should be created using a parent's or guardian's email address only.
Step 2: Complete the Application and Forms
This step is done fully online once you've logged into your account. When the initial application is complete, additional online forms will be available in your account. Please check back frequently to ensure you've fulfilled all the requirements.
Step 3: Contact the Admissions Department
Once you've completed the application and other forms, please reach out to our admissions department. Our advisors will discuss the next steps in the student transfer process.

Phone: 201-445-4466 ext. 104
Once the initial steps are complete, please gather your student's transcripts from the previous three years of education and submit them to the admissions department. This can be done via email. After our department obtains and reviews the necessary documentation, they will reach out to you to schedule an admissions interview.
Additional Information for Parents/Guardians and Students
Each transfer student must also complete a transfer form that confirms the transfer is not subject to disciplinary sanctions at the student's previous school. All transfer students are subject to an academic and disciplinary probationary period during the first full year of attendance.
All transfer students must complete a New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) transfer waiver form upon registration. This form confirms that the transfer is not for an athletic advantage or consideration. Once the waiver is completed by the parent or guardian and the student, we'll process the form with your previous school district.
