Image Transfer Process

In an effort to make the transfer student application more conducive to the current state of schools in Chicago and all over the world because of the COVID-19 virus, we have created an online transfer application.  The deadline for submission is Friday, May 8th.  Please read the instructions below carefully before submitting an online application. If you have questions please check the Frequently Asked Questions section first. If you aren't able to find your answer contact Elizabeth Adelmann by email

  1. IMPORTANT: If you have already submitted a paper application via US Mail, you DO NOT have to submit an online application.  Those paper applications have been received and will be reviewed along with the online applications after the May 8th deadline.  
    1. Additionally, if you have already gathered all of the requirements from the paper application, you can still submit it via US Mail using the address on the application.  Those applications, as long as they are postmarked by May 8th, will be reviewed along with the rest of the applications.
  2. If you have an incomplete paper application (e.g. you are still waiting on getting documents from your school), please move forward with the online application.
  3. If you have not started the application process, please use the online application.

Minimum Requirements for Online Application

Acceptance is contingent upon available space, a transfer applicant's academic history, and successful completion of the current school year. Due to the volume of transfer requests, combined with the few openings available, the school is very limited as to the number of students it can accept. 

    • General requirements to transfer to Jones College Prep:
    • 3.0 unweighted GPA and demonstrated success in a rigorous curriculum 
    • Very good attendance 
    • No suspensions or major disciplinary infractions 
    • Be in good standing at your current school
    • Exemplifies the Jones College Prep mission statement and Grad-at-Grad values
IMPORTANT: Completed applications (which includes the student online application along with the school official and teacher recommendation requirements) must be received by 3:00 PM on May 8th.  If we do not have all required parts of the application by the deadline, then your application will be incomplete and will not be considered for admission.
