Values:
Saint Thomas More Academy (STMA) strives to realize its vision and achieve its mission, 
through collective actions characterized by the following values:

  • Christ-Centeredness – Rooted in a rich Catholic Tradition, STMA’s religious education 
    extends beyond the classroom to permeate all aspects of a shared experience as a school community.
  • Caring Teachers – The heart of STMA is the faculty whose members joyfully extend 
    themselves to ensure that each student develops a firm foundation on which a lifelong 
    commitment to, and love of, learning can mature.
  • Individualized Instruction – Our commitment to a teacher-student ratio of no more than 
    20/1 and small class size ensures that students receive the personal attention they require to accelerate and optimize their learning.
  • Development of the Whole Child – Established with a firm commitment to a classical liberal arts education, STMA’s curriculum stresses religion, a comprehensive reading program, writing, math, and critical thinking with strong attention to language, music, art, and physical education as essential to a core of instruction immersed in a spiritual, loving environment.
  • Community – STMA prides itself on the partnership established between students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community. These relationships focused on the presence of Christ promote a nurturing environment that is evident in all encounters.
  • Integrity – Consistent with attention to Gospel values, interactions with others are 
    characterized by honesty, respect, and trust.
  • Stewardship – STMA invites all members of the community to generously share their time, talent, and material resources in assisting us achieve our mission.
