Admissions Overview

To ensure that an applicant is able to handle St. Thomas' challenging college preparatory curriculum, selective admissions decisions are based on:

  • Compatibility with the St. Thomas Community, including priority of choice in selecting STH
  • Results of the High School Placement Test
  • Overall junior high record (academic, behavioral and attendance)
  • Recommendations of junior high principal and teachers
  • Quality of application (essay, involvement in school activities)

High School Placement Test

Take the High School Placement Test on Saturday, January 25, 2014.  We request that students whose first choice high school is St. Thomas take the entrance test at St. Thomas. To pre-register for the exam, click on the link below and complete the online registration form.  The pre-registration deadline is Tuesday, January 21, 2014.   The $50 testing fee (this is a separate cost from the application fee) must be paid for the pre-registration to be complete.  This fee may be paid by credit card after completing the pre-registration form at the link below.

Pre-registration for the HSPT has ended. St. Thomas will accept walk-ins the day of the test. Those who have not pre-registered should be in-line at the walk-in table by 8:30 a.m., Saturday, January 25.


Transfer Students

All applicants for 10th, 11th and 12th grade are personally interviewed when their application file is complete. Although the timeline for transfer students' applications does not follow the same deadlines as those for freshmen, we strongly recommend that transfer applicants complete their files as soon as is feasible. Available spaces in 10th, 11th and 12th grade classes are usually filled by the beginning of May.

Applicants for 10th grade who have not taken the HSPT must do so. Applicants for 11th and 12th grades must submit their 10th and 11th grade PSAT and SAT results.
