Shadow Visits

shadowOne of the most important factors in making a high school decision is the shadow visit.  At St. Thomas More, we recommend that prospective students spend a day shadowing one of our current students. Students attend classes with their host and receive a free lunch as well as a personal tour of our building. This program offers prospective students the opportunity to experience a day in the life of an STM student and to ask any questions that they might have.  We make every effort to pair visitors up with a current student they know, someone they know from grade school, or someone who shares their interests.  Shadow visits run from 7:35am until 2:30pm on most Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays beginning September 15th.

Interested in spending the day at STM? Fill out the below forms and return them to
Mr. Lucas Thomas, Director of Recruitment.

“We loved the school when we toured. However, once my son did a shadow day, we were SOLD! This is a wonderful, welcoming community with amazing teachers and staff. They take the time to get to know the students and do all possible to help them succeed. I am confident that after graduation our son will be well prepared for a successful happy life!”

– Current STM Parent

“When I took the opportunity to shadow STM, I realized that it was the high school of my dreams. I have talked about the high school since then and have been recommending my friends to the school. So now they are going to shadow, and I hope they have the same experience as I did. It was wonderful, amazing, and I felt very welcomed into the STM community. Now I know I’m ready to join the STM community as well, along with my friends that decide to join with me!”

-Shadow Visitor from 2015

Welcome to the STM Class of 2021! Today, our new Cavaliers attended Servant Leadership Bootcamp, where they learned about how honor, respect, integrity and legacy make up a servant leader. We are excited to see what they will accomplish as a class.

Special thanks to all of our guest speakers and student volunteers who helped us run an inspiring bootcamp today!
