School Notes

  • We joyfully accept students of all nationalities and faith and we require all students attend and be graded on participation in all classes and school celebrations including Masses. To make an acceptance decision, the school will need a copy of previous transcripts and test scores as well as a current teacher evaluation.  The parents will need to have completed the application and our Contract Agreement which spells out the tuition plan and associated fees required for attendance at STMS. We partner with the Fulcrum Foundation for the financial aid process.  More information can be found regarding that on our website.
