I am a parent at St.Thomas the Apostle. My boys have become young men with the faith based family atmosphere at the school. The teachers are always improving their craft throughout the school year. The extracurricular activities at the school are wonderful. There is something for everyone. They have a Theater Club. Romeo and Juliet this year in April. We pair up with students from the University of Chicago throughout the year.
