  • Step 1: Admission Criteria

    Applicants who meet the following admission requirements will be prioritized for acceptance based on space availability: 

    Applicant Requirements (transfer freshman, sophomore, or junior applicants):
      1. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 in core classes (English, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Foreign Language, and {if coming from a Catholic school}, Theology) with a C or better in all classes.
      2. A positive disciplinary record and positive attendance record.
      3. May not have been expelled or are in the process of expulsion from their present school.
      4. Transfers from local high schools are not ordinarily admitted for the senior year. Students transferring from Catholic high schools outside of Las Vegas may be admitted as seniors.
      5. Students must have sufficient credits in place to meet Bishop Gorman’s graduation requirements upon entrance to the school. Applicants that are credit deficient will not be considered for admission.
    All applicants are reviewed by the Admissions Committee. They will be evaluated based on a review of the applicant's records and available space.  Any applicant admitted enters on a probationary basis. 
  • Step 2: Submit An Online Application

    • Complete the ONLINE TRANSFER APPLICATION (available after February 1, 2024) before paying the $100 application fee.
    • The entire process should take no longer than 20 minutes.
    • After the application has been submitted, allow 1-2 business days for it to be processed.
  • Step 3: Submit Required Documents

    Once your application has been processed (please allow 1-2 business days), you will receive an email letting you know an admissions checklist has been assigned to you within your BGHS account under the Admissions Progress tab and you are now able to begin uploading your student’s documents.
    It is the responsibility of the applicant to submit the required materials to the admissions checklist.
    • GRADES
    • Copy of Past Two Years of Grades
      • If multiple documents please scan and save them as one document, then upload.
    • Copy of High School – In Progress Grades
      • If multiple documents please scan and save them as one document, then upload.
    Within the admissions checklist, there is a BGHS-provided recommendation email form. You will need to input the name and email address of the dean/counselor who needs to complete the form.  Once the confidential form is completed by the dean/counselor, it is automatically returned to the Admissions Office and you will receive a notification.  We require the completion of one BGHS-provided recommendation form: 
        1. Dean / Counselor Recommendation Form
    If applying to the Learning Center, an additional recommendation form will be required within the admissions checklist for completion.
  • Step 4: Visit BGHS

    We love welcoming prospective families.  Come visit…let us show you around!   In-person campus tours are a great way for families to learn more about Bishop Gorman High School and see our beautiful campus.  Our school’s environment and energy are best displayed during school hours where you can see our students focused and engaged learning in our classrooms.  Tours typically last 90 minutes.  To join us for a tour, complete an inquiry form and allow 1-2 business days to process your form.  After, you can log in to your BGHS online account and register for a future tour date.  Space is limited to allow a personal experience for our families.
  • Step 5: Submit Tuition Assistance Application

    We offer need-based tuition assistance. The Tuition Assistance application for the 2024-2025 school year will be available on November 1, 2023. 
  • Step 6: Decision Notification

    All transfer student acceptance is based on space availability.  Should there be space, decision letters are sent to applicants who have completed admissions files that include all the required documents as indicated within the admissions checklist. 

The Learning Center

Bishop Gorman’s Learning Center is a service that is available to students formally diagnosed with a learning difference.

Be sure to indicate on the application if your child needs educational support or if there are any special concerns.  There is additional information we will require from you within your admissions checklist.  Learn more about the Learning Center HERE
