We have had three children attend STA over the last 20 years and have been very satisfied with the school.

My oldest son graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas this year (2012) and I have three younger children who also attend. We have been extremely pleased with this school. We feel that he is very well prepared for high school (he will be attending Bishop Moore in the upcoming school year). There was a strong focus on the Catholic faith which was incorporated into all aspects of the school, in activities, the look of the campus, etc. There was also a strong emphasis placed on academics with an expectation for the children to excel and plenty of opportunities for assistance if they were having difficulty. The staff are wonderful, many of them having been there for many years. They value each student and treat each student with respect. My son is shy and an introvert, but he beamed with pride during their compliments and acknowledgement of his efforts. I would recommend this school to anyone and indeed have recommended it. It has been a blessing for my children and it''s a joy for us to continue to send our children there.

My family has been involved with Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic School for ten years now. One of my daughters is a junior in high school and another is graduating this year. (We also have another daughter entering the STA middle school program next year.) Both of my older children were well prepared for high school. My oldest daughter is excelling in her honors and AP classes and my middle daughter will be entering the same program this upcoming school year. We have been pleased with the challenging curriculum and the dedicated teachers and administration. The school offers art, library, PE, drama, band, choir, computer, Spanish, sports, and has an audio/visual studio that is run by the students in addition to the regular academic program. STA has also helped my children grow spiritually, physically, and academically. We love how the children are taught to have the Christ within themselves reach out and touch the Christ within others. We will always be grateful to Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic School.
