- At St. Thomas More Cathedral School, we believe that learning begins in a safe, faith-filled, and nurturing environment with high spiritual and academic standards. We believe that learning is a cooperative experience involving self-motivation, self-discipline, peer assistance, teacher direction, and parish support. We believe that learning occurs most successfully in an atmosphere of acceptance that allows the students to question, to experiment, and to take risks in pursuit of spiritual and academic excellence. We believe that students have different learning styles, talents, and abilities, and that each should be challenged to excel. We believe that teachers should teach with the love, respect and patience that Jesus did. Our teachers establish clear and reasonable expectations that challenge each student to reach his or her potential. We believe that students need a place of structure and order, with schedules and procedures that foster success. We belive in recognizing the diversity of our school and community while training all students to understand and appreciate our unity in the teachings of the Catholic Church. We believe learning is a life-long endeavor bringing us closer to knowing, loving and serving God consistently, despite an ever-changing world.
