Transfer Students & Athletes

Parents of prospective transfer students who are seeking admission to Catholic Central High School should contact Karen Schwenn – Admissions Coordinator, by telephone (262-763-1519) or kschwenn@cchsnet.org to initiate the transfer process. The parent of the applicant will then be asked to furnish a copy of the student’s current high school transcripts to the Director of Admissions for review. Once the transcript has been reviewed and approved, the student may schedule a Shadow Day visit and the parent should complete the Registration Application. After a scheduled interview with the principal, student and the parents, the Dean of Students will determine whether the student will be accepted. Transfer during the senior year is limited.
