At St. Thomas More, we look forward to meeting our new students each year. Some students walk to school right here in our Decatur community. Others come from as far away as Stone Mountain, Snellville and Douglasville. Our student body mirrors the diversity that has blossomed in Atlanta over the last 25 years. While most new students begin in kindergarten, families are welcome to apply for the spots that may be open in higher grade levels. No matter the grade, all new students are welcomed with open hearts and open arms.

We invite parents to visit Saint Thomas More School as they consider applying for the next school year. We hold an open house in the fall. School tours will be held during the weeks following the open house, however, prospective families are welcome to schedule a visit and tour the school anytime.

If you have questions or wish to discuss our admissions process, please contact Eileen Maron, Admissions Director.
