Transfer Students

Students wishing to transfer into the 10th or 11th grade require the same application requirements except for the necessary HSPT scores. However, full official high school transcripts with credits noted are required. It is our policy to not accept local senior transfers, however, exceptions may be made on a case by case basis. 

St. Vincent Pallotti competes in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland (IAAM) that has specific eligibility requirements for transfer students. Specifically, all transferring male student athletes must complete the MIAA Eligibility Verification Form listed below the SVPHS Admissions Portal. Please contact our Athletic Directors for more details and to discuss your specific situation should you be interested in transferring to Pallotti as a student athlete. 

International Students

Our International Program is designed to facilitate a genuine American immersion experience. International students are placed within a typical American classroom and expected to speak English throughout the school grounds. Pallotti provides opportunities for reciprocated learning on topics of culture and diversity as a way for all students to benefit from a global learning environment. Pallotti hosts roughly 40 international students from from British Virgin Islands, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, the People's Republic of China, Romania, Sierra Leone, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, and Vietnam.
