    Transfer Students: students wishing to enter 10th or 11th grade. There are very limited spots for 12th-graders.

    Students wishing to transfer to Collegiate Academy should review the graduation requirements for both Collegiate Academy (college prep) and the Visual and Performing Arts magnet school.

    Students who want to transfer to Collegiate Academy should fax (814-874-6307) or email (collegiateadmissions@eriesd.org) the following information:

    • two complete years of grades
    • most recent standardized test results

    Once the academic information is reviewed, and if the qualifications for admission are met, you will be sent an application link to complete the registration and acceptance process.

    Decisions will be made, and applicants will be notified, the week of May 25.

    Transfer students should also plan to attend our orientation for transfer students on August 13, 2020, at 9:00 a.m., in the library.
