2024-2025 Application Process

St. Thomas More Collegiate is looking for students and families who are able to help further the aims of the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education – students and families who will positively contribute to our school and the STMC community.  If you think you have the Knight Stuff, we invite you to apply to become a part of something special!

We are now accepting applications for students entering Grades 8-12 for the 2024-2025 school year.  STMC will be extending offers of admission to approximately 135 new Grade 8 students for the fall of 2024. The “Class of 2029” will be our 65th class of incoming Knights.

We typically have a few spaces available in Grade 9-12 each year and the amount of spaces varies annually. Offers of admission for Grades 9-12 placements will take place following our re-registration process for current students in early spring 2024.

Families wishing to apply for admission to the current school year should note that we generally run at full capacity, and are typically unable to accommodate students for immediate enrollment. Please contact the Registrar at 604-521-1801 x2100 for further information in this regard.
