Miss Erica Lyons

Hello, and welcome to The High School of Saint Thomas More enrollment page!

My name is Erica Lyons, and I am the Director of Enrollment.

It is my pleasure to assist prospective students and their families in the admissions application and overall enrollment process, which includes but is not limited to, navigating our online enrollment software, having one-on-one meetings for course registration and post-graduation planning, and providing tours of campus.

Our school's enrollment process can be broken down into three steps as detailed below.

Our administration understands and appreciates the discernment that goes in to where your child will spend their high school years, so we are grateful for the opportunity to assist you in the decision making process. 

I am with you every step of the enrollment process, and am eager to welcome you and your student to the Saber family! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached here by email or by calling 217-352-7210.

I hope to receive your child's application, and know that you are always in our prayers. Go Sabers! 

Our 2022-2023 admissions application is now live and it is FREE to apply! Please note that if you submit your completed application, including all forms, before November 1, 2021, you will be eligible for a 5% discount on your child's tuition. If you submit a completed application by February 1, 2022, you will be eligible to receive a 2% discount.

Please also note that currently enrolled students do NOT need to reapply for enrollment next year and are ineligible for new student tuition discounts.

All prospective families are also encouraged to apply for the Empower Illinois Scholarship when its application opens in January.

THE HIGH SCHOOL OF SAINT THOMAS MORE ENROLLMENT PROCESS

Step 1: Complete the Admissions Application Process

Our admissions application is a three-step process, which can be completed all at once or saved and completed in steps. A step-by-step guide for completing the admissions application can be found here.

If the applicant should be extended an offer of admission, an acceptance letter and welcome information will be sent by mail to the applicant's home address.

*Steps 2 and 3 of the enrollment process are only relevant if you receive and accept an offer of admission.*

Step 2: Course Registration

After receiving and accepting an offer of admission, the incoming student will need to select his or her preference of courses for the upcoming semester.

This is done electronically and the link to do so will be included in the student's welcome information that is mailed with their acceptance letter.

The Director of Enrollment will then review these choices and finalize the incoming student's class schedule and email it to their parent or guardian. Their class schedule will also then be able to be viewed on our enrollment software, PowerSchool.

Step 3: Incoming Student Information Packet

Lastly, to complete the enrollment process, all incoming families will need to complete our Student Information Packet with their child, which includes forms and other state-required documentation, before the start of school.

Parents will receive an email with this packet over the summer and be able to fill it out electronically or may print and fill it out by hand. Both options may be printed and turned in at our Registration Day, which occurs during the first week of August.

Please note that all new students are required to submit a physical and immunization record and a dental form. Students coming from out of state must also provide a current eye examination record to the school. Seniors must meet the State of Illinois Immunization Requirements.
