What Makes Us Different?
Discover the difference of a Catholic education at St. Thomas the Apostle School:
Students benefit from the daily study of Religion through age appropriate lessons that help them discover our faith.
The elements of Catholic Social Teaching are incorporated 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.
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.
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 allows students to experience solidarity with children living across the globe.
Organic vegetable garden gives students an opportunity to care for God’s creation and share the fruits of their labor with our parish food pantry.
