The Registration Fee has been reduced from $360 to $300 per student. No discount will be given for 2nd and 3rd students from the same family. The Registration Fee is waived for the 4th and 5th student residing in the same household.

There are two ways to register: 

Online - There is no fee when using an electronic check, or 2.99% when using a debit or credit card. Please click here to re-register online.

Paper Form - Families may print the attached form and return it to the school office with a check. Please click here to print the paper form to re-register.

If for some reason your family will not be returning to St. Thomas More next year, please let us know. If you would like to visit with a member of the administrative team about your plans, we would welcome the opportunity to meet with you. 

STM will continue to utilize FACTS for tuition payments in the 2021-2022 school year. If you plan to use FACTS for next school year, please login to your account and set up a new agreement for the next school year, 2021-2022. Your tuition agreement will not automatically roll over from year to year. 

Please contact Kelly Forbes in the STM Business Office if she can be of any assistance. God bless, and thank you again for your partnership!

The Search Begins for a New Principal!

St. Thomas More Catholic school seeks a joyful, faith-filled, dynamic, and visionary leader to serve as principal of our parish school, beginning in the summer of 2021. STM has a rich history of success in the Baton Rouge community, and the parish has experienced revitalization in the past several years. We seek a leader who will continue the positive momentum for our community as we move STM forward.
Congratulations on an Amazing 9 Weeks of AR!

During the 2nd 9 weeks, 98 percent of students in the AR program achieved their AR point goal. That's awesome! Our eagles are doing a wonderful job reading each 9 weeks, and we know they will keep up the good work!

Nurse's Corner
STM has received communication from the Catholic Schools Office that all diocesan schools will continue to follow a 14 day quarantine after COVID exposure. We will not be shortening our quarantine to 7 or 10 days. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to try to keep our school healthy. You may read the full CSO letter from diocese about 14 day quarantine here.

State law requires that students entering sixth grade receive vaccinations. These vaccines include: Tdap and Meningococcal. The Meningococcal vaccine can’t be given until after the eleventh birthday. If your student turns eleven during fifth grade, please make an appointment to get these vaccines after their birthday and turn in an updated immunization record before the start of school next fall. Students that do not turn eleven until August or September 2021 will be given a grace period after their birthday to receive the vaccinations.
