St. Thomas More School is an accredited college preparatory boarding school in the Catholic tradition for students who have demonstrated intellectual ability yet have not realized their potential.
Within a structured environment, we motivate, nurture, and strengthen the intellectual, moral, physical, and social development of every student.
Dedicated faculty, individualized attention, small classes, challenging yet fun athletics and extracurricular activities, in a 100% boarding environment, are the cornerstones of an STM education.

Our son is a senior at STM. He has achieved everything we could have possibly imagined since our very first visit to the campus almost 4 years ago. Yes, we are happy. But more importantly, he is happy. Of the 7 colleges he has applied to, he has been accepted to 4 and is wait listed for another. He has received substantial merit scholarships to each accepting college. We believe this is a direct reflection of the effort he has put forth and the guidance he has received. Go Chancellors

Excellent school - they take their motto very seriously and your son will succeed ... As the parent of a graduate and a sophomore I can honestly say they do an amazing job with young men.
