HOUSE SYSTEM

The purpose of the House System is to further enhance the mission of St. Thomas High School by fostering leadership skills and increasing service participation, all while building a stronger Eagle community.

The House System will make the transition to high school easier by providing a sense of belonging in a small community across all levels, interests, and activities.

Mission Statement

The House System at St. Thomas high school seeks to enrich school culture, enhance school spirit, provide opportunities for student leadership, promote fellowship, and facilitate pastoral care of all students by drawing upon the history and traditions of the Basilians, leveraging the strong bonds of brotherhood, and building intentional, authentic communities between students of different class levels and among faculty and staff.

CAMP AQUINAS

St. Thomas High School has created an immersive outdoor leadership camp for all incoming freshmen that will take place during the first week of school at Camp Cho-Yeh near Livingston, Texas. Camp Aquinas supports the Basilian tradition to teach Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge and of the school’s vision to form strong Catholic young men in service to the Church and the world.

SCHOOL RETREAT

Retreats are an essential part of the St. Thomas experience. Every freshman, sophomore, junior and senior is required to partake in a mandatory overnight retreat provided by STH during the school year.

WALK-A-THON

Walk-a-thon is the annual student fundraiser for student activities and is a long-standing tradition for over 50 years. Students walk around the Buffalo Bayou near the school and conclude with an afternoon of food and games. Houses that have the highest participation earn points for their house.

SCHOOL MASSES

St. Thomas celebrates Holy Days of Obligation, as well as several other all-school masses throughout the academic year.

FALL OLYMPICS

Fall Olympics is the annual mid semester fall break in which students take a break from class to engage in a day-long series of competitions ranging from sports to chess to video games; the entire campus transforms into an Olympic stadium. Houses compete for points in these various events and earn money to the charity of their choice.

CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE

St. Thomas, with the help of faculty members, hosts a toy drive at Christmas time in support of DePelchin Children’s Center. In an effort to promote these efforts, St. Thomas has worked it out to be a competition, to see who can bring in the most items, among the Houses.

ROUND UP

Round Up is an annual event hosted by the St. Thomas community that raises funds, in which all proceeds go the St. Thomas tuition assistance. All students are required to participate by selling a certain number of quotas.
