Registration

 

 

Registration for New Families is now open!

All new families who would like to attend St. Thomas the Apostle School must fill out an Inquiry Form and return it to the school. This form can also be found in the "Forms" drop down menu under Office Forms.  Any new student in Grades 2-8 should also schedule an interview with the School Principal, as well as provide a copy of their most recent report card.  Once your Inquiry Form has been reviewed and your child is accepted to St. Thomas School, you will receive further information about registration.  

If you would like to speak with someone in the school office regarding registration, please email registration@sttaob.com with your contact information and someone will return your call.

Registration for Existing Families:

Please see 2022-2023 Parent Information Manual  for all updated information.  Re-enrollment information for 2022-23 was emailed to all existing families on February 1.

Please follow the instructions below to register for next year:

  1. Go to  www.enrollwithsmart.com  and verify your information.  The $400 registration fee will be withdrawn from your account in two installments; $200 in February and $200 in March. Registration fees are non-refundable, so if you do not plan to return to St. Thomas in September you must let the school know in writing by January 15.  Anyone registering after February will be charged the $400 in full. All families will also be charged a $48 Smart Set Up Fee that will be added to your February payment. 
  2. Complete the online registration form. (Link to register was sent to all current families on February 1.)
  3. Complete the 2022-2023 B6T Transportation Form .  ALL students must submit this form, regardless of whether or not you plan to use a bus, and we must receive a form for EACH STUDENT.  Also, any family that lives in Old Bridge, Sayreville, South River, Milltown, Holmdel, Jamesburg, Metuchen, or Jackson must fill out a Proof of Residency Form  and provide the necessary documentation.  One form per family needs to be completed and submitted with your B6T.
  4. Complete the Non-Public Textbook Form .  All students in grades K-8 must complete and return this form.
  5. Complete the Non-Public Nursing Form .  All students entering Kindergarten, 3, and 6, must also submit an updated physical exam and vaccination record to the nurse.  All necessary forms can be found below.  If you have any questions regarding this, please contact the school nurse at  nurse@sttaob.com , or  732-251-4812 ext. 8230 .  These forms must be submitted by September 1, 2022.

The registration deadline for current school families is February 15th.  Please submit all requested forms to your child's homeroom teacher. Registration will open to the general public in early March, and any current family who is not fully registered by then may lose their spot.  Families are only considered to be "fully registered" once all forms are submitted and registration fees are paid.  If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact the school office.
