As a small school STMA has the greatest hope to be a light to the world... because God rejoices in exalting the lowly, and He is the one that primarily works through us. Our graduates have made great strides in becoming 'lights', and have reflected on how STMA has helped them to become who they are today. Read what they have to say:
"I think this school has given me so much because it has provided me with the things and people that I needed to stay on God's path. I connected with a great group of people who I am still close with, an intriguing curriculum and motivating teachers to make me think, a chance for improvement in sports, and an extended family in the community of STMA. Most of all, it imparted the knowledge that God is with me in whatever I do. It is this that defines who I am today and for that, I am eternally grateful."

"St. Thomas More didn't teach me what I should do with my life or tell me what is the Will of God (for me) but it did show me how to go about looking for those things. I wasn't just taught what I needed to know in order to get to the next grade or to be prepared for college: I was taught what I needed to know for the rest of my life. I wasn't just given the right answers, I was taught how to ask the right questions. St. Thomas More gave me something that no public school could ever give me. St. Thomas More was a blessing that I didn't fully appreciate until my Faith was really questioned, ridiculed, and sometimes attacked. I was well prepared for the secular world. Whether it is scrutinizing what professors sometimes rant about, debating with coworkers who bring up my Faith, or just having discussions with friends, STMA gave me the tools that I still use and keep in my tool box"

St. Thomas More prepared me in my education by equipping me with the truth and the ability to think critically. It also prepared me in my faith to go on to college ready to stand up for my beliefs and defend my convictions. STMA prepared me for my career field by fostering an atmosphere that helped me realize my full potential and talents. Finally, STMA prepared me for my vocation by creating a staff that modeled virtuous behavior and pointed to the saints as everyday role models.

I am eternally grateful to St. Thomas More Academy for its social environment of like-minded families, which brought us and many others together. I have never experienced deeper, truer friendships than those I have found in my friends from STMA, and I know that present and future students will have the same opportunity to make such great friends.
