Support

The Advancement Department oversees Communications, Alumni relations and Fundraising.
St. Thomas High School has thrived for 116 years because generations of our alumni, alumni parents and friends have supported the mission of the Basilian Fathers.

The Advancement Department will continue to keep you informed about all things St. Thomas, bring our community together for fellowship and fun and endeavor to provide the best educational experience for current and future students.

Fundraising

The 4500Forever Capital Campaign was launched in November 2013 and STH developed a new strategic plan, creating its roadmap for the future. The strategic plan priorities can be summarized as follows.
  • Meet the immediate facilities needs of the current student population
  • Respond to a projected Catholic population increase in Houston by increasing the student body to 1,000 students over the next ten years
  • Enhance recognition for our leadership in character development and education
  • Ensure outstanding faculty to meet current and anticipated needs
  • Safeguard financial solvency during continued growth

Your ability to support St. Thomas is just a simple scroll away at the bottom of this page. However before you give, “Thank You!” Your support touches so many aspects of the school and the lives of so many students in a positive way we just wanted to take a moment to express our appreciation. Tuition covers approximately 85% of the amount spent annually on each student. The shortfall is covered primarily from donations to our Annual Fund. Every dollar donated to the Annual Fund supports the CORE needs of teachers, facilities, extra-curricular programs, classroom instructional materials, administrative expenses and the Learning Commons. Whether you can give $50, $500, $5,000 or more, your gift is extremely important, because every gift goes towards our goal and plays a part in our success! Please make your tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund today by scrolling down to our online form. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Advancement Office at advancement@sths.org. Thanks again for your support!

Pavers for the St. Thomas Courtyard are always available for purchase. Many purchase pavers in April or May in honor of their graduating senior; others purchase in memory of or in dedication to a family member, dear friend, or a "class of."

A brick paver is a wonderful keepsake to honor those with ties to St. Thomas, and to support a school that for over a century continues to greatly impact the lives of all young men who pass through its doors.

To place your brick paver order, simply download the Brick Paver Order Form, complete it, and mail it along with payment to the school as indicated on the form. For questions or more information, contact the Advancement Office at 713-864-6348.
