From Saint Thomas Academy

Saint Thomas Academy is a place where boys harness their greatest intellectual, athletic, spiritual and leadership potential. Here, they can explore and become the young men they are meant to be. It’s the origin of a life-changing bond of brotherhood your son will carry with him for life.

Saint Thomas Academy is unique. It’s not “just” a boys’ school and not “just” a military school. It’s the best of both of those, a place where the call to leadership bonds boys as brothers, where a historic past leads to future greatness.

WE ARE EXPERTS IN EDUCATING BOYS.

At Saint Thomas Academy you'll find a caring community rich with tradition and friendships to last a lifetime. From the start, we have successfully inspired young men to excel both personally and professionally by teaching them to aspire and persevere in the pursuit of self-discovery.

    Our son attended public schools (Top 2 district in the state of MN) until 6th grade and started at St Thomas Academy beginning of 7th grade. We could not be happier with St. Thomas and can’t even compare to the quality of education he was getting where he was. I have no doubt that in addition to us doing our jobs as parents that the partnership with STA helps boys develop into men of integrity, values and character. Classes at STA are small and the education is personal. The teachers know their students well and tailor their efforts to individual student needs. Our son has been successful this year while transitioning to a new school due in part, to the support offered at STA. They clearly prepare students for a successful future.
    We couldn't be happier! Small class sizes, challenging curriculum, character education - all things that we weren't getting at his old public school. It's really amazing to see what kids are capable of when the bar is raised!

    I do not have enough good things to say about Saint Thomas Academy! Attended for 6 years and helped me incredibly when it comes to time management and organization skills I use in college today; truly a phenomenal college-prep school. Athletics are strong and a huge part of the community, it is a blast to be a part of that, so take advantage of it if you are a prospective student! It is a very special place with an even more special community.
    Excellent teaching staff, small class size kept the teachers engaged with the students. College prep school that really does prepare you to succeed in college. Outside of scholastics the sports programs they are are exceptional! Although in some sports not playing at the top league because of school size, they still dominate every year. Easily would recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic highschool.
