Transfer Student Admissions Process

Students wishing to transfer into San Gabriel Mission High School must complete the application procedure listed above and are asked to submit an unofficial transcript.  
An interview will then be made with a member of the Admissions Committee.  SGMHS does accept students to transfer in the spring semester pending review of their file.  If the student is accepted, an official transcript will be requested.  SGMHS does not accept transfers into the 12th grade.  

School Student Non-Discrimination Policy 

San Gabriel Mission High School, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, or national and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.


The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation.


While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student’s emotional, academic and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student’s needs.
