Saint for a Day Program
All 8th graders are welcome to spend a day with a current freshman on Tuesday's and Thursday's and select Friday's and Monday's beginning October 2nd through February.
Registration may be submitted on line on this website beginning September 17th, 2012. Thank you for your interest.
Eighth graders considering attending Saint Thomas Aquinas in the fall of 2013 have the opportunity to spend an entire day with a current freshman who has similar interests. The purpose of the visit is to take a firsthand look at our school. Visitors will discover a typical day in the life of a freshman. They will go to classes, talk to current students and teachers and to experience the overall atmosphere.
Freshmen will be our hosts for the 8th grade visitors. If you have a sibling currently at Saint Thomas Aquinas and you would like to shadow him/her you will have the option to list their name when you register. However, it is preferred that siblings be paired with a freshman.
If you have questions regarding the Saints For a Day program, please contact Diane Pyle, Director of Admissions
