St Thomas The Apostle School

  • The staff of St. Thomas the Apostle, as Christian educators, considers it a basic responsibility to develop in each student a strong desire to reach his/her maximum potential.
  • We believe the Catholic environment of the school should make it possible to provide for the spiritual, intellectual, psychological, social, cultural, and physical development of each individual student so that the student may continue to grow in each area.
  • Therefore, the Christian environment gives testimony to Catholic morals, values, and ethics in society and in the Church.
