      Has anyone successfully transferred into a selective enrollment high school?

      I know of at least one child who has transferred into Whitney Young after his freshman year. I have no idea what the criteria are.

      I know transfers happen, but I doubt there are that many spaces available.

      Transfers can and do happen for Selective Enrollment high schools, but whether a school offers the opportunity varies year to year, and how many spots varies as well. It is possible, though!

      Jones has typically had a very clear process, although this year’s applications closed already. Here are some of their FAQs for future reference: https://www.jonescollegeprep.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=123382&type=d&termREC_ID=&pREC_ID=609650

      Whitney Young also has the process on their website with a deadline of May 4th: https://www.wyoung.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=199357&type=d&termREC_ID=&pREC_ID=615661
