What Makes Us Different?

Discover the difference of a Catholic education at St. Thomas the Apostle School:

Spirituality

  • Students benefit from the study of Religion through age appropriate lessons that help them discover our faith.
  • Teachers incorporate elements of Catholic Social Teaching into all areas of the curriculum, allowing students to make connections between our faith and the world outside our doors.
  • School-wide monthly prayer services are held, with each grade taking a turn leading our community in prayers and songs.

Scholarship

  • Rigorous academics in five major subject areas:  language arts, math, religion, science and social studies, all of which are  infused with the tools of technology and hands-on activities.
  • Weekly “specials” for grades K- 5 include: art, library, music, physical education and Spanish.  Pre-K students enjoy weekly gym and library classes.  Students begin attending science lab once a week in third grade; fifth-grade students attend science lab five days each week.
  • Differentiated learning allows teachers to get to know each child and his or her learning styles and abilities.
  • A vibrant extra-curricular program encourages growth beyond the classroom through clubs and activities that celebrate the arts, academics, athletics, and spirituality.

Service

  • Community service projects organized by each grade allow students to put their faith into action by reaching out to those in need.
  • An annual school-wide service project lets students experience solidarity with children their age living across the globe.
  • Organic vegetable garden gives students an opportunity to care for God’s creation.
