Applying to St. Thomas

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

  • Compatibility with the St. Thomas Community and a sincere desire to be an Eagle brother
  • Entrance Exam results
  • Overall junior high record (academic, behavioral and attendance)
  • Recommendations of junior high principal or counselor and teachers
  • Quality of application (essay, involvement in school activities)
  • Status letters for the 2017-2018 academic year will be mailed and emailed on Friday, March 10, 2017.
Get started today! January 15th is our deadline for our first round of admissions.
  1. Set up an account in our Online Admission Center and submit an Online Application for an Incoming Freshman in your account.
  2. Sign up for one or more Entrance Exams:
    • Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) – Sign up at ISEEtest.org and choose the testing location of your choice, but you must indicate you want a School Score Report sent to St. Thomas High School, #571055, so that we receive a copy of your student's scores.
    • High School Placement Test (HSPT) - Log in to our Online Admission Center and chose the HSPT Sign up form.
  3. Provide requested transcripts and recommendations using forms found in the Transcripts & Recommendations dropdown below.
Start the transfer process early! Mid-year transfers are only taken in January at the beginning of the second semester.
  1. Set up an account in our Online Admission Center and submit an Online Application for a Transfer Student in your account.
  2. Provide unofficial transcripts or report cards showing the student's current and previous three years' academic records.
  3. Submit PSAT scores or other standardized testing results, if available.
  4. If a freshman or sophomore, sign up for one or more Entrance Exams if not already taken:
    • Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) – Sign up at ISEEtest.org and choose the testing location of your choice, but you must indicate you want a School Score Report sent to St. Thomas High School, #571055, so that we receive a copy of your student's scores.
    • High School Placement Test (HSPT) - Log in to our Online Admission Center and chose the HSPT Sign up form.
  5. Provide requested transcripts and recommendations using forms found in the Transcripts & Recommendations dropdown below.
To access the required recommendation and transcript release forms, download copies from the following links and submit them to your school after December 1st. We will accept either the Houston Association of Independent Schools (HAIS) recommendation forms linked below or the Catholic High School Recommendation forms available and required by other schools. You do not have to request two sets of recommendations from your student's current school; please submit only one of the two sets indicated above. Please do not request transcripts until after the fall semester has ended so that we get academic records for two grading periods. We must receive these completed documents directly from your son's current school by the January 15th deadline, or, if your school ends its fall semester in January, then within one week after the semester has ended.
