The High School of Saint Thomas More

Thank you for your interest in The High School of Saint Thomas More. High school is a pivotal moment in students’ lives, especially in their intellectual, physical, moral and spiritual formation. Students who continue their Catholic education have a better chance of continuing to live out their faith after high school and find success in their vocation - whether that is in college, the military, the work force, the seminary, or convent.

The High School of Saint Thomas More lives out its mission of helping students pursue lifelong learning with faith and excellence. Open since 2000, STM provides an academically challenging environment that prepares students for their academic, professional and spiritual life after high school. Our average ACT score of a 25 is well above national and state averages.  Over 66% of our students achieve passing scores on AP exams, and 100% go onto post-secondary education or the military.

Our faith-based education instills

Gospel values, morals, and virtue

through a Catholic worldview--

whether that is through the reading

material in English classes, discovering

the truth of a mathematical equation,

solving scientific equations, or finding

the beauty and goodness of an art piece.

Our students are inspired to grow in their

faith through a curriculum that embraces

Catholic values and principles.  Our students

see the world they live in with the eyes and

ears of Faith.

Involved with the life of the school, our students are acting in musicals, performing in band or choir, or competing on athletic or academic teams.  There’s something for all Sabers at STM.

We would be honored to have you and your family as part of the STM Saber Family!
