St. Thomas More Academy began in 2020 with a small group of parents in search of an academically excellent, beautiful, Catholic education for their children—an education that would lead them towards freedom in Christ. In August of 2021, the Academy joyfully opened its doors to 55 children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. In the 2022-2023 school year, the Academy will more than double in size to serve students in grades K-10.
A distinctive community rooted in friendship and love of God, STMA seeks to form its students in intellect, will, and heart:
- STMA provides a rigorous classical education that liberates the mind by giving students the traditional tools of learning, so that throughout their lives they might read insightfully, think rigorously, write beautifully, and speak articulately.
- Students receive a unified vision of reality through a uniquely integrated curriculum, in which academic disciplines are interwoven to illuminate God’s providential design for human history and the wisdom present in all aspects of creation.
- To preserve contact with reality, STMA promotes a hands-on, observational approach to the natural sciences.
- Music, Art, and Drama are an integral part of the curriculum.
- At STMA, students are formed not only in intellectual virtues, but also in the moral and theological virtues that equip them to love God and neighbor with attentiveness and joy. They learn their identity as children of God and understand they have a unique mission to fulfill in God’s plan for the salvation of the world.
- Above all, STMA seeks to foster an apostolic community of friendship in Christ, the only source of true freedom. Students are nourished by the treasures of the Catholic Church, through the Catholic intellectual tradition as well as the spiritual practices of Mass, Confession, and a daily rhythm of prayer.
STMA is convinced that growing in wisdom and freedom, in a community of friends, for the sake of God’s glory, brings authentic joy.
