Dear Prospective Students and Families,

Thank you for your interest in our school. Please see the steps below for how to complete the enrollment application process. 

Please note, that I cannot make a decision regarding enrollment until ALL (six) forms are complete and properly submitted. Additionally, this means that you will NOT be eligible for any early application discounts if you have not submitted a fully completed application as outlined below. Additionally, unlike in years past, there is no longer an application fee associated with completing the enrollment application process.

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns, of if you run into any technical issues. I can be reached by email at or by phone by calling at 217.352.7210 or 815.200.9198. I am here and happy to help!

In Him through her,
Miss Erica Lyons
Director of Admissions and Campus Ministry

Completing the STM Enrollment Application Process:

Step 1: Complete the Pre-registration for Enrollment Application

Please use this link to go to our pre-registration for enrollment form and complete it. After filling out this form, you will receive an automated email from "" with the next step in the enrollment process. If you do not receive this email in your inbox, please check your spam folder.

At this point, your student's profile HAS been successfully created within our enrollment software, PowerSchool, however, your student's application will continue to be in "Incomplete Status" until you complete and properly submit the forms online as outlined in the initial email you received from PowerSchool when you completed the pre-registration for enrollment formAgain, your student's profile has been created; you DO NOT need to resubmit the pre-registration for enrollment form. 

If you do resubmit this form for a student whose profile is already created, any sequential pre-registration for enrollment forms will be rejected, and you will receive an automated email from PowerSchool stating as such.

Step 2: Set up a PowerSchool Account

If you do not already have a PowerSchool account, you can set one up by doing the following:

1. Open the internet browser on your computer.

2. Type into the address bar.

3. Click on "Create New User" tab.

4. Fill in the information requested for your desired username and password.

5. Enter your student's full name, Access ID and Password. Your student's Access ID and Password will be found in the automated email you receive after completing the pre-registration for enrollment form.

If you already have a PowerSchool account for a currently enrolled student, follow these steps to add your new student to your account:

1. Open the internet browser on your computer.

2. Type into the address bar.

3. Log in using your already created PowerSchool Parent Portal username and password.

4. Click on "Account Preferences," and select the second "Students" tab.

5. Click on "Add" in the upper right hand corner and use your new student's Access ID and Password to link your new student to your account.

Step 3: Complete Enrollment Forms

In PowerSchool, select the student you are enrolling and click on the "Forms" link within the left navigation menu. ALL forms MUST be completed before a decision on enrollment can be made. In order for me to consider your student's application, and, again, to be eligible to receive a 2% discount on your student(s)' tuition, all forms must be fully complete and properly submitted by February 1, 2021.

Please note, "Form A" states that The High School of St. Thomas More will request copies of the following pupil records ONLY from students coming from St. Matthew Catholic School, Holy Cross School, St. Malachy Catholic School, and St. Thomas Catholic School. If your child is NOT a current student of one of the schools listed above, YOU are responsible for collecting and uploading the documentation listed there from your child's current school, and consent for a record release for your child, so I have permission to review them.

Once all these forms are completed and properly submitted, I will review them and be in touch regarding an admission decision. Please also create your FACTS account, or if you already have one, please add your student to your FACTS account. That is found here

You should be able to go in and complete these payments on and after February 15, 2021, but we encourage you to set up your account as soon as possible.
