All students applying for admission to St. Thomas More Parish School must submit birth certificates, sacramental records, and health records. Students previously enrolled in another school must submit teacher recommendations. Students applying in grades one through eight must also provide copies of standardized test scores and a copy of their current and previous years school report card. In addition to supplying the above information, all incoming students are required to take an entrance test prior to admission. Priority acceptance is given to qualifying children of St. Thomas More parishioners.
Open Houses are held for prospective parents. This is an opportunity for these parents to tour the school and visit in classes while instruction is going on. Dates for these Open Houses are published in the St. Thomas More Church bulletin, the Texas Catholic Herald, and local newspapers. Tours are available, by appointment, at other times of the year. However, to keep from disturbing the learning atmosphere, these tours will not go into the classrooms while instruction is going on. Applications are accepted after November 1st for the upcoming school year. The Entrance Exam will be administered several times during the spring semester. For additional information concerning tours, the application process and the Entrance Exam, please contact the school office at 713.729.3434.
