Note on Admissions Processing Priorities:

Although STA welcomes those of all faiths, we are committed to first making Catholic education available to every Catholic family who desires it. This goal is reflected in our admission priority policy as follows:

  • 1st Priority: Siblings of Current Students and children of alumni
  • 2nd Priority: Saint Thomas the Apostle Parishioners
  • 3rd Priority: Out of Parish Practicing Catholics
  • 4th Priority: Non-Catholics
