New student inquiries are available online. Once completed, the inquiry is submitted to school personnel. Inquiries are view weekly and a staff member will reach out via phone to schedule a school tour. During the tour we will provide families with additional information, meet with the principal, and ensure all your questions are answered.
St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School works with the parents in the faith formation of their children and continues the value development begun in the home. The school, however, has a mission to be a Catholic school and to form students in the Catholic faith. All students must participate fully in Religion class and other faith-formation activities subject to the restrictions by the Church upon full participation in the Eucharist by non-Catholics.
Acceptance to St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School is a privilege, not a right. Parents have a right to apply to St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School for admission of their child (ren), but the privilege of attending the school is contingent upon the parents’ acceptance of the school’s program of formation and instruction and their willingness to accept responsibility for their portion of the cost of education. Admission of any student is at the sole discretion of the principal.
Because the Church acknowledges parents as the primary educators of their children, the school believes that it has a responsibility to continue the child’s faith formation. If the parents’ public beliefs, values, and practices cause disruption of the school’s educational climate, it becomes impossible for the school to support the parents in the faith formation of their children. In cases where parents engage in such conduct, continued enrollment of their children may be denied.
Acceptance into St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School is dependent upon the ability of the school to meet the educational needs of the child. The school may not have all the resources necessary to meet the educational, physical, psychological, and/or emotional needs of an individual child. While the school will make an effort to accommodate reasonable needs, if the needs of the child exceed the resources of the school, the best interests of the child may be best served by placing the child in a different educational environment with appropriate resources for the child.
Admission of any student is at the sole discretion of the principal.
