Thank you for considering St. Thomas Episcopal School for your child's education. The community of St. Thomas Episcopal School believes in teaching its children how to live lives of excellence. Parents and faculty work closely to provide the experiences and the guidance students need in order to understand their world. We believe all of our students possess individual strengths that make the collective group complete. Above all, we seek to share with them God’s love and to develop life-long habits of praise to Him. Our admissions process has been developed to select students who will be successful at St. Thomas.
The head of school will make the final decision for acceptance. The St. Thomas educational program is designed for a diverse student population with respect to pace and style of learning. Modifications in the presentation of curriculum are made in response to individual student’s readiness, overall maturation, and personal learning needs. While St.Thomas serves a diverse student population, we recognize that some students have learning and/or behavioral guidance needs that may exceed the resources of the school. For this reason, St. Thomas reserves the right to evaluate all new students prior to admission to determine their chances for success in the school. All students at St. Thomas are expected to exhibit age appropriate respect toward adults, students, and the physical learning environment. It is normal for students to err on occasion, and faculty and staff will handle such isolated incidents promptly and respectfully.
St. Thomas Episcopal School follows the Texas state school age requirements for admission to preschool and kindergarten. September 1st is the cutoff date assigned by Texas law to determine eligibility for enrollment. Preschool children must be toilet trained as a requirement for admission in the three-year and older classrooms. Parents of a student who demonstrates consistent problems will be asked to keep their child home until toilet training is completed.
