We are a Catholic Christian faith-centered community, which integrates spiritual and intellectual growth by nurturing faith, encouraging academic achievement, and inspiring responsible action. As such, we share in the educational mission of the Church by providing opportunities for all members of our school community to grow in their relationship with the Lord and meet the challenge to witness to their belief in Jesus Christ.
Education at St. Thomas More integrates Christian living and academic pursuits in an endeavor to develop the whole child. The programs are substantive, comprehensive, and varied with emphasis on basic skills, providing a solid foundation for learning. In addition, critical thinking, decision-making, and a love of learning are nurtured. Cultural experiences for appreciation, enrichment, and enjoyment are afforded the students.
