St. Thomas More Academy

Traditional Catholic Excellence in Education

“Catholic education aims not only to communicate facts but also to transmit a coherent, comprehensive vision of life, in the conviction that the truths contained in that vision liberate students in the most profound meaning of human freedom.”

Saint Pope John Paul II

Our Mission

St. Thomas More Academy is a Catholic school for grades K-12. Founded on love for the Church and its teachings, St. Thomas More Academy helps students to incorporate faith into their studies and daily lives.

St. Thomas More Academy provides a challenging program of studies designed for higher learning and the challenges of life. STMA aims to form our students as future leaders who are well rounded spiritually, humanly, and academically.

Our History

St. Thomas More Academy was founded in 1989 with the explicit purpose of providing a traditional Catholic education for students in grades Kindergarten through twelve. The four pillars of love and reverence for Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, love of our Blessed Mother, obedience to the Church's Magisterium, and firm adherence to the Tradition of the Church provide daily spiritual nourishment and support for the Academy's teaching mission.

For a Catholic education to be traditional, it must embrace and teach the Truth revealed by Jesus Christ as faithfully transmitted through the ages by the Holy Roman Catholic Church. Furthermore, the truths of the Catholic Faith must permeate the entire curriculum for the traditional Catholic education to be complete.

Our Catholic Identity

St. Thomas More Academy is currently recognized as a Catholic Education Honor Roll School. The national Honor Roll program is directed by the Cardinal Newman Society and has recognized over 300 high-performing Catholic schools nationwide since the program’s inception in 2004.

St. Thomas More Academy exemplifies the Principles of Catholic Identity in Education and these articulate elements the Church expects to find in all Catholic schools and which distinguish them from other schools. The principles are derived from Church documents related to education, including the documents of Vatican II, documents from the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education, and the writings of various Popes. The five principles are:
1. Inspired by Divine Mission
2. Models Christian Communion
3. Encounters Christ in Prayer, Scripture, and Sacraments
4. Integrally Forms the Human Person
5. Imparts a Christian Understanding of the World
