School Notes

  • Saint Thomas` Episcopal School students carry their STE experiences with them through the rest of their lives, so we aim to cultivate a truly outstanding environment through exceptional academics, outstanding fine arts offerings and engaging athletic programs. As a private, Pre-K through 12 college preparatory school founded on Christian values, we believe in nurturing the mind and spirit of our students through classical and Christ-centered instruction. With a focus on personal instruction and college readiness, our graduates leave STE prepared for the rigors of higher education and, ultimately, to be kind and honorable citizens.

I love this school! It's a place of substance where academic literacy in math, English, natural science, social studies, and foreign languages is still honored. The students are remarkably respectful to teachers, and they're kind and supportive to each other. It's a formula that works: acceptances to Yale, Stanford, Princeton, Caltech, Rice, and Carnegie Mellon this year; recent state champions in soccer, swimming, cross country, and basketball; state champions for their string orchestra and choir; one of the best yearbooks in the nation; and one of the best Scottish band and dance programs in the world prove that this is a small school that packs a big punch! I know my daughter's friends will be her friends for life, and she couldn't be surrounded by a better community of people.
