INCOMING STUDENTS

Welcome to St. Thomas High School. To better prepare your son for a successful transition to St. Thomas, the admissions department has compiled a list of important terms, dates, and website links.

The Admissions Department is here to help you navigate the journey to becoming a St. Thomas Eagle. Our knowledgeable staff is happy to answer your questions about your future at St. Thomas High School.

Parents of incoming freshmen and transfer students are invited to be Fr. Murphy’s guests for breakfast. Hear his vision for the school, ask questions and meet other new STH parents. July 29, 30, 31, August 1 and 2, 2019 from 8am – 9am (Campus Location to be announced). Register by emailing alison.broussard@sths.org. Please include the name of each person attending and your choice of date.

Sage Dining is our cafeteria catering service for the 2019-20 school year. No credit cards or debit cards may be used in the cafeteria but you may open a spending account for your son or fund an existing account. The MyKidsSpending link will open in July. You will need your son’s student ID number in order to open an account with MyKidsSpending. St. Thomas High School strongly urges all parents to open and fund an account. Freshmen and transfer students will need to bring cash for purchases until they receive their student ID cards, usually provided after the first couple of days of school. Only student ID cards can be used to access the spending accounts.

Note: A Sage Dining account is optional and not required for students. A student may bring his packed lunch from home.

Walk-a-Thon is a fundraiser sponsored by Student Council to raise money for fun activities for students throughout the year. By investing a predetermined dollar amount in a designated level of membership, you fund activities for students throughout the year while creating a savings for your student on the designated activities. Walk-a-thon is scheduled for Wednesday, September 11, 2019. A flyer will come home with your son explaining the different levels of commitment and the rewards your son earns with that commitment.
