Incoming Freshmen & Transfer Students
Due to increased demand, there is a waiting list for the freshman Class of 2025. We still encourage you to schedule a tour and apply, as those on the waiting list will be notified as space becomes available. Space is still open for the sophomore class of 2024, the junior class of 2023 and the senior class of 2022.

- There is a $60 non-refundable application fee that is paid through your personal admissions page once logged in
- Payment of the application fee automatically signs up your student for the placement test date to be determined. The placement exam is only for incoming freshmen. If you missed the testing date or are applying after the test date has passed, please contact the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 949-766-6076.
Request Your Recommendation Letters
We ask that you request three confidential recommendation letters to be completed by your child's Math Teacher, English Teacher and Principal/School Counselor. Please log into your Application Portal found in Step #1 and electronically request recommendations from your child's Math Teacher, English Teacher, and Principal/Counselor. Your teachers will then directly upload their recommendations into your portal.
Once all files are complete, the Admissions Committee at SMCHS will review all completed applications for acceptance decisions that will be e-mailed to you. In the meantime, you may check on the status of your child's application by logging into your personal admissions page. Upon acceptance, registration information will then be forthcoming.
Thank you for your interest in Santa Margarita Catholic High School. Feel free to reach out to the Admissions Office at email@example.com or 949-766-6096 should you have any questions.
