St. Thomas Eagles (HSB)
St. Thomas High School is a Roman Catholic college preparatory school for young men in grades 9-12. The rugby team at St. Thomas, the Eagles, are a perennial Texas Rugby Union champion and coached by the legendary Jim Wolfinger.
The school was founded by three Basilian priests in the spring of 1900 with the mission to provide secondary education strongly rooted in the teachings of the Catholic faith.
Those three incredible priests may never have believed that now, over 100 years later, St. Thomas High School has grown from its humble beginnings in a warehouse in downtown Houston into the extraordinary monument to education and spiritual development that it is today.
Located in nearly the geographic center of Houston, St. Thomas thrives on a lush campus at the corner of Memorial Drive and Shepherd Drive, approximately two miles west of downtown Houston, TX. From its high-tech classrooms and state-of-the-art athletic facilities to the constant celebration of its rich and storied tradition, St. Thomas prides itself on providing the most fulfilling and well-rounded high school experience to inquisitive young men during some of the most formative years of their lives.
