Houston-area Catholic and private high schools require entrance exam test scores as a part of the admissions process.  Testing for admissions in the fall of 2023 begins in early November, 2022.

St. Thomas High School is once again offering classes for current eighth grade students in preparation for the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE).  The classes are coed and open to all students who intend to apply to those schools.

The classes provide tips and strategies, as well as instruction in the content areas tested:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Mathematics Achievement

A great majority of students who have taken the courses were admitted to their first choice school.

Instructors will be Mr. Rod Takacs, a veteran high school teacher and current Dean of Students at St. Thomas High School, as well as Mrs. Camille Hagerty, a former eighth grade teacher at St. Christopher Catholic School and in the Goose Creek and La Porte School Districts.

Currently, three sets of Saturday classes are scheduled. The current schedule is as follows:

*The same content is taught in each of the classes below, therefore it is only necessary to register for one class*
