Before you apply, we encourage you to visit us in person to explore our campus and meet with our staff and administration.

Once we have received your completed application, our Admissions Director will contact you to schedule a visit on a day that is most convenient for both the prospective student and their future teacher.

Applicants can submit their enrollment fee of $100 to the Admissions Office in advance or on the morning of their scheduled visit. This fee is the same for new and re-enrolling families.

Please make your check payable to STAES. This fee is non-refundable unless your child is not accepted. We currently do not accept enrollment fee payments online.

For students in PreK3 through 1st Grade, we administer Brigance Screening for a $20 fee in order to ensure each child receives individualized and developmentally appropriate instruction.

When you meet with our Admissions Director either during your tour or on the day of your student’s visitation day, you will receive an enrollment packet.

In this packet you will find a set of forms including two teacher recommendation forms and the records release form to your child’s previous school, along with the enclosed self-addressed envelopes.

If applicable, please provide them to your student’s previous school so that they can complete the forms and submit them directly to St. Thomas on your behalf.

We require all applicants provide a copy of their student’s birth certificate in order to complete their application.

All children must be toilet trained. To be considered potty trained, your child must consistently recognize when they need to use the restroom, go to the restroom independently without assistance to undo clothing or wipe clean, and be able to independently wash and dry their hands.

In order to be considered for our Pre-K 3 or Pre-K 4 program, the child must be age 3 or 4 respectively no later than October 1st.
