My experience at STMA was unlike any other I have had at the schools I have attended. It is a community in the truest sense of the word. Everyone and everything, from the faculty to recreational events, is ordered towards each student's development and happiness. I came into STMA as a timid and apathetic girl and am leaving a confident and passionate academic. Yes, the curriculum is rigorous, but it has been carefully constructed to guide the motivated student from whatever starting level to scholastic (dare I say collegiate) heights of intellectuality.

My only critique of the school would be on its approaches to nutrition and exercise. Huge emphases are placed on physical fitness and health. The crossfit "club" is populated by at least 25% of the student body. These things are all well and good but when coupled with an anti-carbs/sugar mentality, it can breed high anxieties around food. As someone currently struggling with anorexia, this aspect of STMA has been damaging.

STMA isn't a school with large facilities, but we still manage to win plenty of athletic titles, all with excellent academics. The students are a fun-loving group, and I am so grateful to the teachers for their continued guidance. They have taught me so much, whether from a textbook or their own personal experiences.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at STMA, and will continue to recommend it to every highschooler I meet!
St. Thomas More Academy is a wonderful school! Considering it will be my fourth and last year there, I can confidently say that my teachers and fellow classmates have strengthened me academically, spiritually, and morally. It is a very welcoming and safe environment. I highly recommend this school to any Christian family!
