Transfer Requests

Transfer Request Info for Current Da Vinci Students

Da Vinci has a very limited number of seats available for students who wish to transfer from one Da Vinci school to another. Transfers are not permitted mid-year or within the first year of attendance. If you are in your first-year as a newly admitted student, we encourage you to speak with your Da Vinci counselor or principal to address your concerns and devise a plan to ensure your child's success in the current placement.

Transfer Request Priority Window for 2024-25
January 2, 2024 through February 29, 2024

Transfers will be approved based on the following criteria: a) valid reason to request transfer, b) space availability at the requested school, c) student is in good standing at their current school, and d) administrative approval for the transfer.

Instructions for Completing an Intra-School Transfer Request

  1. Please complete the Intra-School Transfer Request Form (form will be available from January 2, 2024 through February 29, 2024) if you are interested in requesting a transfer to another Da Vinci school for Fall 2024. Completion of this form is not a guarantee of transfer.
  2. Current Da Vinci Connect High students who wish to request a transfer to DVC, DVD or DVS must also apply on SchoolMint as a new applicant by February 29, 2024, pursuant to terms of the Connect charter petition.
  3. Transfer request final decisions take place during the summer for the upcoming school year. Parents/ guardians will be notified by email by July 31. If you have questions about this process or are experiencing difficulty with submitting your request, please contact our Enrollment Team at


Transfer Request Info for External Applicants 

Thank you for your interest in our schools. Da Vinci usually has limited openings for students wishing to transfer from a different high school. Students who wish to apply for the 10th, 11th or 12th grades are strongly encouraged to attend (or view) an Information Meeting as part of the application process. Please visit our Enrollment Overview page for more info.

Transfer applicants who turn in a timely application are entered into the lottery in order to determine waitlist ranking. When there is an opening, an offer of conditional enrollment will be made. Applicants must then submit transcripts from all prior high schools the student has attended before a final offer is made. For a course to be transferable, the student must have earned a grade of "C-" or better.

Transcripts are used for grade level determination, not for admissions purposes.

Late applications are put at the bottom of the waiting list.

If a transfer student is offered a space at one of our schools and accepts the offer, the student must formally withdraw or dis-enroll from his or her previous high school. This entails a parent or guardian visiting the previous school and completing a withdrawal/disenrollment form.

IMPORTANT: In the event that a transfer student is called for a space during the summer, please ensure that you have requested an official final transcript from the office at your current school in JUNE, before the school's administration goes on summer break. Transfer students without an official final transcript cannot be given a class schedule when school begins in mid-August.
