Saint Thomas More Academy offers a great college preparatory curriculum. The schools provides one-on-one guidance for students that walks them through the college application process from course selection to letters of recommendation. There are so many opportunities for students to engage in leadership roles, extra-curricular clubs/activities and athletics. The Arts Program is a wonderful opportunity for novice and arts majors alike! You can be involved in sports even if you've never played before. The basketball program, volleyball program and tennis teams always do very well and typically make it to state level competitions each year. The students and faculty are very friendly and welcoming. About half of the students are Catholic and half are not. The environment is safe and nurturing. It is a great place to learn and grow! The school facilities are great...athletic fields, gym, science labs, and lunches are amazing.

STMA gives its students many opportunities for leadership roles and for joining varsity sports teams. Your child will learn how to teach themselves at this school, especially when it comes to AP exams. The teachers care about the students, but wear way to many hats. Many of them teach two/three different subjects that they aren't very qualified for, moderate clubs, and even coach sports teams.

The school does have an activity period that allows the students to participate in clubs, be tutored, tutor, and meet with teachers, which is very helpful. The school environment is overall happy and friendly, there is no bullying and everyone is excepted. The food is great, but pricey, which is understandable because there are so few students. Overall, this school could be amazing if it had more students, which would allow them to hire more teachers, but overall it is good.
I came to this school when there were more then 150 kids and since then the school has massively declined. The administration is rigorously working to help the reputation of the school and pull more kids in, but there are better schools around to compare. The teachers care about you but don’t care about the subject they teach. Half the time the kids run the class because the teachers don’t care. The few teachers that show their passion in the classroom are also forced to teach other subjects/electives because of low staff. On a positive note, the food is absolutely amazing, but so expensive.
