"St. Joseph and Christ Child" – Bartolomé Esteban Murillo

2024-2025 Enrollment 

Applications are accepted from January 15th through November 30th.  The 2024-2025 school year begins 7/1/2024 and ends 6/30/2025.  Planning for the school year starts as soon as the student skills assessments are returned to your advisor for evaluation.  This means you are welcome to start planning for the new school year as early as January 2024 and start the new school year when you choose.  While most STAA families elect to follow a traditional August through June academic calendar, we have a handy, step-by-step planning tool to help you craft a custom academic calendar that fits your family.

We recommend submitting your family's enrollment application eight to ten weeks before the date you have in mind as your first day of the new school year.  It is best to order your welcome/assessment packet early in the year so you can complete the skills assessments with your students in March or April.  However, enrollment applications and skills assessments are accepted any time between January and November.  To get your family enrolled and started on the skills assessments and academic planning process with your advisor, follow these three simple steps:

1. Submit the enrollment application online

2. Pay the annual enrollment fees by check, money order, credit card, or payment plan.

3. Watch for your welcome/assessment packet to arrive in the mail within a few days.




Services included in the annual enrollment package: 


  • Evaluation of skills assessment (one per student)
  • An Academic Packet of personalized course recommendations, course plans, and book ordering information provided by email (one per student)
  • Support for teaching-parents from experienced homeschool advisors by telephone appointment, member forums, and email (one advisor assigned to your whole family to help align your students' studies) 
  • Variety of forms and resources provided on the Member Support Site to help track, organize, and guide your homeschooling
  • Open invitation to add any of the options available to member families as long as your student's enrollment is active (optional services such as the Transcript Option, Grading & Guidance, etc.)


  • Access to the Student Zone for course Q&A forums, weekly graded quizzes, and gradebooks to help track and calculate quarter grades and progress (for students in Grades 7 through 12; web resources dependent on courses students are registered for)
  • Students studying high school courses may join their teaching-parent on the line for high school advisor support appointments
  • Priority registration and discount on live high school courses


Annual Enrollment Fees

  • See the chart below for the list of annual enrollment fees.
  • Books and materials are purchased separately through your favorite or our recommended suppliers. 
  • The Transcript Option may be added to the enrollment if you wish to participate in the semester reporting process to develop a transcript with St. Thomas Aquinas Academy.  The annual fee for this option is $75.00 per student.
  • A full schedule of fees and options follows.  Click on any item on the list to learn more about it.  Return to this "Enrollment" page (see the link at the top of the site) when you are ready to submit the enrollment application: CLICK HERE TO APPLY.


What questions can we answer for you?

We would love to hear from you!  Please reach out with your questions by phone or email, schedule a courtesy telephone consultation with an advisor, or submit an enrollment application if you are ready to start planning for the upcoming school year.


We have all enjoyed the way STAA ties the courses together for the whole family.

Thanks for all you do on your end to help make our homeschooling academically, intellectually, spiritually, and morally enriching!!



My advisor helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like are the tips she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones.



This is our first year homeschooling. STAA and [our advisor] have made this a very easy transition. We have had a great year!

I really don't know what I would do without your kindness, and very helpful advice. You are a blessing to our family.



The assessment testing was quick and easy to do, so I didn't expect much valuable feedback. Boy was I wrong!!! It was like my advisor had met my kids and spent hours/days with them.

We have been so very happy with our first year with STAA! Thank you for walking me through it and for all the fantastic resources and materials we are using. There is not one we don't like!



Our family so enjoyed our wonderful relationship with STAA as our [son] worked his way through high school. It was a wonderful and outstanding experience for him and we continue to suggest your program to all those who are looking for an excellent homeschool experience.

Since I am writing, I will also sing more praises of the Greek Studies plan. [My daughter] moaned over the timed-essay and then did very well. So easy to implement with the choose one reflection topic from each subject and then get ready, get set, go! Apparently the school also gave suggestions for the process essay in "Format Writing." Thank you! For a mom of many this is real time saver.

The academy works as a team to accomplish for your family specific ideas or needs for education, but more importantly, what each individual in your family needs, even Mom.



God bless you for the job you are doing -- the peace you have helped us find as a family is priceless!



We can’t imagine going without these wonderful, enhanced lesson plans! Thank you!

On the STAA Study Guides


I especially appreciate the advice and wise counsel I receive from the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy staff during our phone appointments and their understanding of my children's needs.

It is a thrill to receive the delightfully arranged weekly guidelines from STAA that keep us on track but allow for flexibility.

I can honestly say that our children have blossomed into well rounded individuals because of your program.
