Visit Us

We recognize that you have many excellent choices when it comes to selecting a school. While we do our best to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision, there are some things that just can’t be put into words. That’s why we encourage you to experience St. Thomas School for yourself.

Come for a tour or Open House. See students and teachers at work in our classrooms. Explore. Ask questions. Tell us about your children and what you envision for them. Hear from other parents about their experience. Community is such an important thing at St. Thomas School. We value the solid relationships we’ve formed with our current parents and look forward to building one with you as well.

Open House

Our largest admissions events, Open Houses give you the opportunity to hear from school leaders, tour our campus and classrooms with a parent volunteer, and ask questions to a panel of current students and, if available, alumni. We offer two Open Houses:

  • Friday, November 2, 2018
    9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
    Introduction and student panel begins at 9 a.m. followed by tours of the school.
  • Saturday, January 12, 2019
    9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
    Introduction and student panel begins at 9 a.m. followed by tours of the school.
Register for Open House

Group Tours

Led by our Admissions team, group tours are intended to show you the workings of a real day at St. Thomas School. Just like our students, you'll begin your day by attending Chapel. Next, you will have a tour of the entire school and learn about the STS journey from preschool through 8th Grade. You'll have the opportunity to visit classrooms to observe teachers and interact with students.

Tours begin at 8:10 a.m.
