Priority Placement for Incoming Students (Transfer Students)

Based on guidance from the diocese, students will be assigned a Priority Placement group number once we have received all required application documents prior to the March 15th transfer application deadline. Therefore, the Priority Placement Policy will be implemented on a rolling basis (by date) once application portfolios are complete. Application portfolios are considered complete when all supporting materials are submitted. Applications will continue to be accepted after March 15th on a first-come, first-serve basis until the class is full. Once the class is full, students may be placed on a waiting list.

Group 2 Student who is currently enrolled at a Catholic school within the Diocese of Lafayette.
Group 3 Student who is a member of a parish within the Diocese of Lafayette.
