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 click away. 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.
