When to Apply?
The admissions process begins September 1st for the following academic year. Applicants may begin the process by visiting our campus as a student shadow (recommended). Families are also welcome to schedule a family tour or visit our campus during the annual Open House. After a family has decided that STMA is a good fit for their student, the entrance exam (ISEE) can be scheduled and the on-line application process may begin.
STMA has two rounds of admissions:
- Early (Winter) Admissions - The admissions process must be complete by December 12th to be considered for the first round of admissions decisions, which will be sent via mail by the end of December.
- Spring Admissions - The admissions process must be complete by March 1st to be considered for the second round of admissions decisions, which will be sent via mail by the end of the second week in March.
After the first two rounds, admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis while class space is available. If space is not available, an applicant may be placed on the waiting list.
Transfer applicants for the Upper School (grades 10-12) do not follow the same admissions timeline and should contact the Admissions Office to discuss how and when to apply.
St. Thomas More Academy is open to any young man or woman, regardless of race, creed, gender, or economic status. The Academy makes reasonable accommodations for students with physical disabilities.
