Registration

 

 

Registration for New Families:

All new families who would like to attend St. Thomas the Apostle School must fill out an Inquiry Form  and return it to the school. This form can also be found in the "Forms" drop down menu under Office Forms.  Any new student in Grades 3-8 should also schedule an interview with the School Principal (interviews are currently being conducted via phone as the school building is currently closed to visitors).  Once your Inquiry Form has been reviewed and your child is accepted to St. Thomas School, you will receive further information about registration.  

Unfortunately we are not able to give tours at this time.  If you would like to speak with someone in the school office, please email registration@sttaob.com with your contact information and someone will return your call.

"Little Angels"   Preschool Programs:

4 Year Old Programs:  In addition to a comprehensive Kindergarten readiness program, technology, Spanish, movement, and music are included to target age-appropriate growth while incorporating both free and directed play.  

Child must be 4 in accordance with the sending district's age requirements.

We offer a 5-day, Monday through Friday program, as well as a 3-day, Monday - Wednesday-Friday program.  Both classes are from 7:45 AM - 2:00 PM.

3 Year Old Programs:  Children learn fundamentally through play because learning is optimum when it is fun.  The best way for our 3 year olds to learn through play is with movement, exploration, music, and pre-reading lessons. All children must be 3 years old before October 1, and be toilet trained before starting school.

We offer a 5-day, Monday through Friday program, as well as a 3-day Monday-Wednesday-Friday program. Children can be enrolled in either program for full days (7:45 AM - 2:00 PM), or half days (7:45 AM - 12:00 Noon).

Please see the Parent Information Manual above for more information on our Preschool Programs. To schedule a tour, please call 732-251-4000 ext. 8229.
