St. Thomas seeks to enroll children who will benefit from its values, purpose, and program. Applicants for admission are evaluated to determine their general aptitudes and competencies, and their ability for readiness to work at a level comparable to that of students already enrolled.

After all requirements are met, the application is considered complete and will be reviewed by the Admission Committee.  To be considered for the first round of openings, the application should be completed by the end of January.  Applicants are notified of the Committee's decision in early March.
