Your Time is Here: Invest in GOLD! 

CURRENT 8th Grade students 

All current 8th grade students interested in becoming an STA Freshman for the 2023/24 school year must sit for the High School Placement Test (HSPT) at STA on Saturday, December 10th (makeup date) . Please note that the registration for the HSPT also serves as your student’s 9th grade application.

Shortly after your student takes the HSPT, parents will receive an email with a link to upload supporting documents (see documents for admissions below). Do not email these documents prior to receiving our email request.

Any emailed documents will be discarded. Some Catholic feeder schools will provide STA with these requested documents, but it is the responsibility of the parent(s)/guardian(s) to ensure these documents are received by the indicated deadline. Please discuss this matter with your individual school.  After receiving the supporting documents, STA will take a few weeks to review each student’s file (HSPT scores, 7th /8th grade grades, other standardized test scores). Admissions decisions will be emailed to parent(s)/guardian(s) at the end of January.    

Priority for review and acceptance is given to those applicants taking the HSPT, and specifically to those that take it at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School.


10th-11th Grade Transfer Applicants

At this time, STA’s 10th, 11th, and 12th grade classes for the 2022/23 school year are full. If additional spots were to open up, we would update here on the STA website.  If you have any questions, please contact our Admissions Director, Adam Matthews
