Over the past decade, 100% of St. Thomas the Apostle School students have graduated and enrolled in high school, with 90% of our graduates enrolling in what are considered college-prep high schools. In addition, we have learned that from 2007-17, 81% of STA alumni enrolled in college after high school, compared to 63% of CPS elementary school graduates. Also 71% of STA graduates from 2007-17 have demonstrated college persistence, meaning they have stayed enrolled for at least 2 years.

Because of the fact that STA’s admissions process is not academically selective, the data from this study and on our graduates’ high school admission shows us that there is strong academic instruction happening in the classrooms at STA! We are proud of our alumni!
